This summer, my family vacationed in Southern Utah and I'm reminded about the virtual life I used to live and the real life I now live.
What a splendid week it was! We spent time in the same area that my family had vacationed back in the late 1970's. Over the last 35 years, I have returned there probably 20 times. I first visited Duck Creek as a teen, and now returned at the age of 52 with my wife, three adult children, and Adam's wife, Sherrell. I expect we will continue to return to experience the beauty and history of this area; my hope and desire is that I get the opportunity to teach my grandchildren how to fish in that area and lead them on the same trails I first walked with my own mom and dad.
There is one part of this experience that was amazing – out of all the times I've taken my family, my experience last week was more like my first visit in 1977. I was able to carry my own chair down the trail to the lake. I could bend down and fill my own water bobber from the lake and didn't have to ask one of my sons to fill it for me. I also was able to put any fish I caught on a stringer without having to ask someone else for help! While in Utah we also experienced an awesome performance of Henry IV Part One at the Utah Shakespeare Festival and this year, unlike the years prior to Biggest Loser, I was able to sit in a regular seat instead of the handicapped seating due to my size. What I am telling you is that for me… more >>
This Catholic priest, Father Kapun, was known as an angel in arms during the horrific Korean War. He saved hundreds of people and always let his soldiers know that the presence of God was with them at all times. No matter what the case was, he always helped his men out.
To be awarded the Medal of Honor is the most prestigious military achievement to be given to someone. Even after Father Kapun passed, the men he saved are still standing to honor him. This is one of the most beautiful stories you will hear.

Pastor Rick Warren said that his nearly 40 years in ministry have helped him learn how to benefit from opportunities by first asking a few questions to determine whether to take advantage of them or not.
Warren notes that successful individuals see opportunities when others do not, a skill people can learn. He admits that he was poor at seizing opportunities and missed out on many early on in his life. But now he has learned to say "no" to good opportunities so that he can say "yes" to great ones.
"Opportunities are all around you but if you don't know how to see, sift, sense or seize them, then you're not going to know what to do with your life. You're going to miss on God's plan for you," Warren said during a sermon on Sunday. more >>
There has always been a special bond between a father and his daughter that is magical. On this bride's wedding day, her father wanted to do something special that she would never forget. After this performance, you can see how much his little girl means to him.

In the Bible there are many different passages of wisdom and knowledge. It is very important that we use our knowledge and experience to make decisions. But, most of all, we use the Bible as guidance. Who knows better than the Lord when it comes to guiding us in the right direction?
Always remember that no one can lead us in a better direction than God. Our own understanding and experience can help make a better decision and the Lord plays a major role in that.
