A View From the Porch

A View From The Porch
Waiting for Your Lost Kids To Come Home


"When he was still a long way off, his father saw him. His heart pounding, he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him. The son started his speech: 'Father, I've sinned against God, I've sinned before you; I don't deserve to be called your son ever again.'

"But the father wasn't listening. He was calling to the servants, 'Quick. Bring a clean set of clothes and dress him. Put the family ring on his finger and sandals on his feet"  (Luke 15:20–22 MESSAGE)

The story of the prodigal son has always been my favorite story revealing the Father's heart: A Father waiting for our return, a Father loving extravagantly, a Father unimpressed by our rehearsed repentance, a Father choosing to love no matter how far we've run, a Father longing for us to return to His house and spend eternity with Him.

This past month the Father gave me the privilege of becoming that kind of father as my wife and I welcomed an amazing young lady into our family.

Jill walked into my office a month ago and shared with me the latest update on this young lady - one of our extended family members. She had worn out her welcome at yet another sobriety home due to a relapse with drugs and alcohol. Jill said, "Honey we have to do something for her, she has nowhere to go, and love has to look like something! I think God wants us to add her to our family." Those words struck my heart, and Jill and I called out to The Lord for an answer! His response was... "Why not you?"

A Dose of Romance Reality - for Valentine's Day

This month I've asked my assistant Mary to share with you, from a woman's perspective, on the most romantic day of the year - trust me men, this is not the sappy love story you're expecting and trust me women, you'll still want to read this!

A Dose of Romance Reality

My husband and I have been married for just about 3 years. But before you write us off as newlyweds with nothing new to offer in the way of marital wisdom or maintaining a healthy romance - let me share a little bit about where we came from.

I grew up in a happy Christian home, one of three kids, where my parents stayed together through thick and thin for 47 years until my father passed away. My husband grew up in a rather chaotic home as one of eight kids, and saw his family literally broken apart by his parent's divorce (the kids were divided between 5 homes). Ours is a second marriage for my husband, the first of which produced two beautiful girls (now grown) and ended in divorce.

If you've concluded that I'm a step-parent, you're keeping up with me. Hopefully you've also concluded that we've been around the block and may have something worth saying about marriage.

When my [now husband] and I were looking at rings together, I remember him saying, "When a man starts spending money, you know it's serious." Did some of you men say - AMEN?! That's not exactly my definition of romance, but it stuck with me.  (continue reading...)

Wedding Day Blessings (Part 2)

We are on Wedding-Day-Count-Down here at our house. No stress, right?! This Saturday I will be walking my beloved daughter Jessica down the aisle while donning a kilt and then turning around and performing the service. I'm already crying just thinking about it. 

 Wedding Day Blessings (Part 2)

The Father of the Bride

Weddings can be difficult for the Father of the Bride, as he is often overlooked as everyone defers to the bride, except for when it comes to that one thing he alone is needed for.

No, I'm not talking the money! Although I know at times if feels like that!! I feel like the in the movie, "The Father of the Bride" where they decided NOT to have the trained geese walk down the aisle - phew! Glad to save a little on that one (just kidding!).
