This past week was a tough week. It’s not that I was drowning in the depths of depression, or anything like that, it was just a low week. They happen every now and then, and you just need to wait them out, kind of like the flu, without the weight-loss. What bothers me about these times is how hard it is for me to see God and to know that he is present. Well, maybe “know” is the wrong word.

Hey there, everyone. I’m sitting in the Denver Airport waiting for my flight to Boise and catching up on a little blog reading. Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time working on getting the painting done in our new home, and I’m really getting sick of it. I chuckled when I came across this post from Michael Hyatt, so I thought I would share it with you. Definitely worth the read.
I thought I’d post the video from my message this past Sunday. We were looking at the life of Joseph and some of the ways he managed to survive a life in the pits.
