Love Hurts, Boone NC

"I really like your "Love Hurts, Boone N.C" piece and just enjoyed reading what you had to  say about following Christ. Am wondering what the significance of "Boone, N.C" is. We lived  there in 2000 to about '02."

Being passed ove

Exodus 9-12Great Passover story this a.m. I love this story because of what it means to me personally.  We all get passed over.  Promotions, raises, not being picked for the team, being a member of the in-group, all of us get passed over now and then.  As an artist hardly a week goes by without a “passing over” arriving in the mail.  Lost this show or that commission.  Getting passed over is not for the thin skinned.  But the exact opposite is true of this original Passover and the one so…See More

Skypeing God

Exodus 5-8The plagues on EgyptMy oldest son in New York has been texting me all through my quiet time. The Old Testament sure would have been different with today’s technology.  The plaques would have been crashing hard drives and identity theft and God would have Skyped Moses. The thing I love most about modern technology is how easy it is to connect with loved ones.  Loved ones should always stay intimately connected.  I guess that’s why there’s the Bible and prayer.  See More

I'm SoreExodus 1-43:7 “…for I (God) am aware of their suffering.”I am hurting this morning!  I started a new sculpture yesterday and my body is paying for it.  Making large scale sculpture is hard on a 53 year old body.  In one sense pain is really a blessing.  It’s my body’s way of informing me that it’s still alive, albeit sore, and needs attention.  Pain fills me with empathy for my body which moves me to action to care for it.  This same miracle occurs with my heart and soul.  Isn't it…See More

Hi Aaron, good to hear from you.  I have been a fan of your work for some time.  I really like the newer large scale wood installations.
