Moving Forward in A New Journey

Life Changes – Our Purpose Changes

After Terry went home to be with our Lord, my life’s path set out on a new journey.  God has now given me a new purpose in life.  Or, has this been there all along?  My new mission is to Re-impact – to serve and give hope, love, and support to those following me in the paths of life that we have in common.  May this new path in my Journey be comfort and a living testimony.

Follow the Path

The Gift

As we approach Christmas Eve, it is way too easy to get caught up in the emotions and pain of Terry Flue going home. I have to admit that it is hard, even at year two. But, I do feel God working on me. For example, signs have been coming at me lately, reminding me...

Lean In

So, day before yesterday I had my right knee replaced. This followed my left knee two years ago. Going in, I had some familiarity with what was to happen. I must say that I was very nervous. Not for the surgery, but for what would happen after surgery. I can't stand...

The Dash Dash

Yesterday, I attended the funeral of a very, very good friend, Lyle Bates.  Lyle and Shelley were Terry and my best friends when we lived in Parkland.  In 1979-1980, being a fire chief, and new to the community, I didn't have many friends outside of the fire...
