God is Everywhere, Especially Here

Posted by jon on March 26, 2012 in but seriously..., family and friends |

As I sit down to write this week’s blog I am having trouble concentrating. This is the view that I am having to try to block out so that I can focus on writing something meaningful and entertaining. I know, woe is me. I am sure that many of you are crying for me. Don’t […]


A Day Not So Well Spent

Posted by jon on February 8, 2011 in family and friends, not so deep thoughts |

I spent most today in the bed fighting with a fever. Of course the day I get sick is the same day Cee comes home with pink eye so not the most fun day at all. Its days like this that remind me that my wife is totally amazing. Without batting an eye she took […]


Its a Boy

Posted by jon on January 28, 2011 in family and friends |

That’s right our family will be complete come June 13th. Tiff and I are expecting our second child this summer and we just found out that he is a boy! Cee, his older sister, was at first violently opposed to having a little boy, to the point of temper tantrums, but she finally agreed the […]


A New Chair…A New Life

Posted by jon on December 2, 2010 in family and friends, not so deep thoughts |

One of the greatest inventions of our time is the recliner. Let’s be honest electricity and the phone are nice but what are they without a comfortable place to enjoy them from? In college I had an old recliner I had bought at a church yard sale. I know it was old because the base […]


Christmas Perspective

Posted by jon on December 26, 2009 in but seriously..., family and friends |

The Christmas gift was a tradition begun by the early church as a way to help those who needed it. So the natural progression of course over the last 1500 years is the cluster of “I, Me, My” that Christmas has turned into now. How did we go from feeding those with no food to […]


Just a Little Off the Top

Posted by jon on December 9, 2009 in family and friends |

Snip, snip, snip. Approximately 7 sec and it was over.  She was afraid it wasn’t going to be enough but I had come this far and there was no turning back now. We did it. I’m glad I had a friend with me, it made sure I would be too embarrassed to cry. No more […]


When Christmas Can’t Wait

Posted by jon on November 17, 2009 in family and friends |

Christmas is easily my favorite time of year. As I’ve already discussed, I love the music. It is a uniquely wonderful time that is awesome in its relevance to our faith and unifying as it brings families and friends together. I love to decorate for Christmas. The tree, the lights, outside, inside, its all good. […]


the Odd Kouple – Where Joy & Sadness Flow

Posted by jon on October 13, 2009 in but seriously..., family and friends |

It took me a few weeks to write this. Its been on my mind every day since I heard. But how do you express what can’t be put into words? Let’s begin with some context. Common experiences unite us and draw friends closer together, so naturally when Tiff and our friend Nikki got pregnant within […]


What a 2 Year Old and a Mouse Taught Me About Worship

Posted by jon on October 12, 2009 in but seriously..., family and friends |

About 2 weeks ago Tiff and I took Cee to see “Playhouse Disney Live.” For those of you without a 2 year old, Playhouse Disney features the characters Handy Manny, the Little Einstiens, Tigger & Pooh, and of course Mickey Mouse and his gang. The show was very cute and a lot of fun for […]


In Dog Years I’m Only 4

Posted by jon on October 1, 2009 in family and friends |

I turned 30 Sunday. It is of course the natural progression after turning 29 last year but it is somehow not at all the same thing. Thirty is a round number (no fat jokes). It brings to a close a whole decade and begins a new chapter. I guess at the end of any decade […]
