Myrtle Beach

…was amazing. What a great trip.

We hit the ocean, enjoyed the pools at the hotel, walked along Ocean Boulevard, played at the arcades, saw a hula and fire show, went bowling, bought some souvenirs at the beachwear stores, and were complete tourists in the city where I used to live. It was great.

Saw a bunch of old friends in the process while we were there, which was really terrific. It was good to see my people ūüôā I miss that place. Fun times and some good memories made this past weekend for sure. I’m thankful and blessed to have had the opportunity to go.

Until next time, Myrtle Beach…


Do you ever just feel really…blessed?

Not necessarily because anything is going particularly good or bad, but just because ya know you’re lucky to have what you have and that God’s love is bringing you a certain kind of joy that can’t be stopped.

I’ve been feeling that way lately. Nothing here on Earth has influenced it. It’s definitely coming from the Man Upstairs.

So yeah, I feel really blessed right now. And I am super thankful for that.

Have a great day everyone.

I posted this photo on my personal Facebook page today. Thought I would share it with those of you who visit my blog as well.

I love taking nature pictures and had a lot of fun taking this one, despite getting a bit soaked in the process ūüôā I’ve said it before – there is so much to see out there and you don’t have to go far to find it. We’re all blessed to have some really neat sights and sounds at our disposal to enjoy whenever we want, and the best part is…they’re free!

Have a great day.

I trust that you will find what you’re looking for. If you can’t find any of those after listening to the sermons on this page, please let me know.

Meanwhile if you live in or near Peoria, Illinois I encourage you to join us at Riverside Community Church this Sunday. If you don’t, I still encourage you to enjoy one or several of the sermons online and check back for more in the future.

Every time I set foot inside this church I am thankful to be there. The messages I have heard at Riverside have truly changed my life.

Hopefully the words spoken in these messages will bless you as much as they have blessed me ūüôā

Blessed are…

   for they will be filled.
