The title of my blog, ‘Narrow Thoughts’, describes how I view most of life. I believe that Christians, in their regenerated nature, are to think narrowly. My ‘wide-minded’ thinking in years past got me into a lot of trouble. I am no longer interested in that kind of thinking. As a result, all of my writing is a reflection of life, the gospel, and the church.
My followers can expect to see at least two posts per week along with new quotes added regularly. I absolutely love quotes! I believe they give us a quick snapshot of what is going on in an author’s mind and heart. You will find a wide variety of quotations ranging from diplomats to authors to my family members. ‘Favorite Quotes’ can be found on the lower left hand side of my home page.
I would love to have you subscribe to my blog so that you can receive my content every time I post something new. You may ask, “Why would I want one more email?” If that is the case, you probably shouldn’t subscribe. (But I really hope you do!) What I would appreciate even more is to read your comments and opinions on the things I have written.
If you want to get a sense of what I write about, here are a few posts you can check out: Life, the Gospel, and the Church. For various reasons, they are few of my favorites. Picking them was much tougher than I thought, either because I am more impressed with myself than I ought to be (which probably is the case) or because they actually have something worthwhile to say. Most likely they are my favorites because they strike some sort of deep chord in my soul.
I was born in 1953 (a full on baby boomer), therefore, I live in the reality that I have far fewer years to live than what I have lived thus far. I expound on this reality in a post reflecting on my 64th birthday: Happy Birthday! One Year Closer to Death. I should warn you that it is a longer post than what I normally like to write. I am not a huge fan of long blog posts, I tend to lose interest and won’t judge you if you do the same.
I graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in Communications. I was once determined to be a professional golfer and went to college on a golf scholarship. My dream to turn pro ended when I realized that my game was not good enough to make money and that I would most likely starve to death if I tried. Golf was an idol to me for years, and every spring, as I smell the freshly grown grass I am tempted by the game; there is always the ‘senior tour’. I still enjoy the game.
I am married to Jenny. We have six grown children, five sons- and daughters-in-law, sixteen grandchildren (all of whom are spread throughout the country and Mexico), and a dog from Israel named Jed.
