    Raf got me a Roku for Christmas, as well as a membership in Netflix and I haven’t watched so many movies in a really long time!

  • Reflections on Those Things Not Seen

    It’s two days until Christmas.  Christmas, a time for faith if there ever was one, a time for not seeing but knowing that something is true.

  • Reflections on the Skeleton of Trees

    As I look up into the gray winter sky from the desk in my office, I see the skeletal structure of the tree outside my window.
