Anchored and Holding Fast

Musings and delights of a mountain-dwelling, ocean-loving, motorcycle-riding, hopeful Chief-of-sinners; a husband, father, brother, son. worshipper of the Three-In-One. I have been the betrayed, and I have been the betrayer.

It was so humbling and such a joy to be able to spend some time with these guys this afternoon.  For almost 4 years I spent every Saturday morning and frequent afternoons during the week sharing meals and whatever we could find to help make their difficult lives just a little easier.  Many friendships were forged over those years.  I was so blessed to be able to spend an hour with this beautiful broken community.  I’m grateful for the embraces, the laughs, the stories.  At the same time I am grieved to see how difficult the system makes it for these guys to get out of the cycle of homelessness.  I am grateful for those here in Bullhead who keep trying to make a difference for these men and women.

I was so bummed when I accidentally left my first OSB on the hood of the car and drove off.  I’m really thankful to have found one at an affordable price.  It’s a beautiful treasure of early Christian thought and theology.  Also-I really dig my new/old coffee cup.   (at Kelly Cabin )

Guys night with these hooligans… #dadlife #kellyboys  (at Galaxy Diner)
"I am bending my knee
In the eye of the Father who created me,
In the eye of the Son who purchased me,
In the eye of the Spirit who cleansed me,
In friendship and affection.

Through Thine own Anointed One, O God,
Bestow upon us fullness in our need,
Love towards God,
The affection of God,
The smile of God,
The wisdom of God,
The grace of God,
The Fear of God,
And the will of God 
To do on the world of the Three,
As angels and saints 
Do in heaven;
Each shade and light,
Each day and night,
Each time in kindness,
Give Thou us Thy Spirit.”
