Adventures From Washington DC

Happy Wednesday! We decided to stay one more night in Washington with our kids before coming home today. It’s just so hard to leave them. Yesterday, we installed wireless surveillance cameras all over the city, buried a few hundred cans of mace, and introduced ourselves to every neighbor! (lol) We mapped out every possible path to […]

Still Saying Goodbye To My Kids… :,(

Happy Tuesday! I’m writing form Northern VA this morning, @ Heaven Balsamo’s new college home. Coree is staying here for a few weeks while his dorm is being prepared. After a very long day of packing, loading, driving, unloading (up and down three flights of stairs), unpacking, and grocery shopping… in torrential rainy conditions, Heaven […]

Saying Goodbye To My Kids…

Happy Monday! Today, I drive my kids to Washington DC for college. It is a year round college, meaning that once they begin I may not see them very often. My heart is broken. John 14:27 Peace I [Jesus] leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the […]

Congrats Heaven Balsamo, Blazing Challenge In 4:06! lol

Happy Sunday! Last night, my prissy daughter Heaven Balsamo won the blazing challenge @ Buffalo Wild Wings (12 blazing wings in under 6 minutes). She scarfed down those unbearable wings in 4 minutes and 6 seconds! Congratulations Heaven, that’s my girl! Actually, I’ve never done the challenge and neither has Emily… therefore, the credit for […]

Faith In Jesus Changes Everything!

Happy Saturday! Mark 6:10-11 “Wherever you go,” he said, “stay in the same house until you leave town. But if any place refuses to welcome you or listen to you, shake its dust from your feet as you leave to show that you have abandoned those people to their fate.” This was spoken by Jesus to […]

It blessed me so much that I thought to bless you with it. httpv:// In this video, “I Give Myself Away,” William McDowell sings… Chorus: I give myself away I give myself away So You can use […]

Peeping Into An Endless Abyss Of Blaring Sounds.

Happy Thursday! One minute we can feel like we are changing the world, like at any moment all of our efforts will bring this troubled universe to a necessary halt and then send it spinning in the right direction… and in the next minute, we can feel like we are nothing more than a tiny […]

Jesus Really Loves You

Happy Wednesday! I’ve been writing my blogs from McDonnalds this week. That is because I’ve had to drive Emily to work and then go to visit my grandma… and driving back home or to my office chews up the precious time I can be spending with her. Today, I want to thank God for loving […]

Legends, of Tomorrows Better World!

Happy Tuesday! I’m sending my book manuscript, Make Me A Legend to its very first prospective publisher today. It’s an online submission, should take a few weeks for a response. I’m not sure this is the company I want to end up with, but they are massive enough to take my book around the world! […]
