Spring Upon Us

Spring Upon Us

Depending on where you live, you may have seen signs of spring approaching or even arriving. Here in Raleigh, NC, we’re having a day close to 70 degrees. We had one or two of those over the winter (to our jubilation!) and we’ve had one snowfall. Gotta have at least one, right? Since I’ve lived here, we have always had at least one. Of course, it doesn’t last more than a day and two days after that, everyone is wearing shorts (the college students, at least.) It’s good to be emerging into...

Happy 2020!

It’s still January, so I can still wish you a Happy New Year! How was 2019? Maybe it was fantastic. Or maybe you’d rather forget it even happened. Mine had its share of downs as well as ups.

It’s clean. New. New Year. I’m excited to have a new chance to see what God will do. I guess I have that chance...

I’m thankful, too, for another year on this earth with a decent life and good health. (I’m not crazy about the new number representing my age, but Happy Birthday to me anyway!) I don’t think I’m more thankful at Thanksgiving than on other days of the year, and I’m thankful for that! God has helped me cultivate an...

Kyle’s Fall Newsletter 2019

Seems like a cliché to say that time goes fast. I’ve heard older people say that the older you get, the faster it goes. I hope that’s not true since I have a lot of things I want to do and enjoy. The idea of age hits me once in a while when I visit my Mom, who is 84. She’s a bit slower, forgets a couple of things once in a while, but inside the same wise woman who guided and inspired me all my life. In August of this year, yes, just a month ago, she moved from Virginia to my city, Raleigh, NC...
