Grapevine Lake

I have lived in Texas since late 2012,   I have had the chance in that time to do some exploring and my frequent flights have given me a chance to see first hand that for the entire time I have been here the lakes have all been well below their banks.   I have never visited a lake in the Dallas area that wasn't in water conservation, it was always strange to see the eroded original shoreline and then walk down to the current shore line.  Well after the storms of the last few weeks, that has changed dramatically.   I've seen more thunderstorms in the past month than in my entire time in Texas.  And as you can see, Grapevine Lake, is well above it's banks... a dramatic lesson in extremes.

You've got to go out and explore... you can't see the wonders of the world if you don't leave the comfort of what you know.

We must take time to sort through our thoughts and clear our minds of unnecessary clutter to see things we would normally miss.

Making Tracks

Sometimes the tracks are clear and you know what you have to do… other times you have to make your own tracks and do what must be done.   The trick is to forge ahead with confidence….

Finding You

Nearly a year since I've heard your voice; a year to find myself and find you in the process. I see you in everything I do, I see you in the ones we love. I know you are here with us when we need you; I know I can count you among the angels in my life. You are a part of me, this provides me a great comfort knowing that you live within me.  There isn't a day that I do not think of you, the difference is now I smile... because I never really lost you.

Words can fail to express the beauty of what lies within sight… sometimes we fail to see the importance of what is in front of us when we focus on the wrong things.


There are things throughout our lives that happen and are beyond our control.   These events can come sporadically or one after the other in very close proximity to each other.   When the dust settles and you open your eyes and access the situation, it is shocking at what remains.   Things fall away and turn to dust and only the strongest remain.

 It is time to take account of what remains and build something bigger and better than what came before.
