“I’m With the Band!” Festival Disney’s 10th Anniversary

Come With Me to Walt Disney World This Weekend

I admit I’m guilty of a somewhat misleading title. As I write, I’m sitting on a plane en route to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fl. It’s a little too late for you to actually come with me. But you can come with me virtually through the magic of social media on Facebook, Twitter and […]

The Glory of God, from Mount Jefferson NC

  Sometimes, I forget how small I am… and how big God is.
