that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

happy birthday



Merry Christmas my dear friends and family… I am so blessed by each one of you, I wish I could tell you all individually, and in person, how much I adore you…and how much Christmas is not only about celebrating Jesus’ and His life but celebrating my own life and all that YOU ALL bring into it. I can’t put into words what I truly feel and think of all of you, but I hope that this season and today and tomorrow is filled with quiet awe and wonder and overwelmingly beautiful and fun moments with your own family and friends.

Be blessed… if even a fraction of how blessed I am by you, then I think you’re doing pretty good.


grace and peace,
