Church League Softball Fistfight

I don’t think I have ever participated in or attended a church league softball game where one team or the other  completely exemplifies Christlike behavior.

But in my experience, in over 20 years of playing or watching church league  softball, the problem is typically church leaders grumbling […]

Cyle’s Smiles – Safehouse (Movie Review)

I enjoyed the experience but it was not the best movie I have ever watched. For more information check out the review here.

Cyle’s Smiles – John Carter (Movie Review)

This was an o.k. movie.  Not good, not great, but just above average. I give one thumbs up for John Carter being worth a viewing. The visuals, sets, and scenery, were awesome But, the movie sometimes lulled me to sleep with it’s slow pace.

Some people talk about dangling the carrot before the horse. I don’t have carrots, but I do have Cheetos—at least they’re the same color. My family and I climbed Copperhead Summit in Black Mountain, NC. It took twice as long as it should have, because we took along my three-year old son, Carrick. His little legs churned so fast. I’m sure he felt like he […]
