The First Day of 2017

Happy New Year

I have heard it said whatever you do on January 1st is what you do the rest of the year. If that is true, it is a blessing that January 1st falls on Sunday. We have an opportunity to visit the church of our choice (if you live in a place that allows such freedoms). My goal for this year is to be much closer to God: to try my best to not get in his way and to seek his direction before I go on my own. We often pick a direction and then ask the Lord to bless our decision but what if we asked him first about what direction to go?

Here is my list of the things I want to do today:

  1. Pray
  2. Go to Church with my family
  3. Pray more
  4. Sit and enjoy a meal with my family
  5. Tell those around me that I love them
  6. Play games with my kids
  7. Read
  8. Write
  9. Exercise
  10. Pray some more

What’s on your list of things to do today?

Episode 11: Season 1 Finale

In this episode:

he-one-off-technology-podcast-aroyrichardson Christmas Episode Season 1 Finale

We talk about the Technology we are thankful for and our Christmas wishlists.

Chuck is in town and in the studio. Normally Chuck and I record over a Skype session but Chuck was in town and we decided to do something special by recording the episode live and in person together. We hope you get a kick out of the things we are thankful for. It is a long list.  It is an amazing episode. We hope you enjoy!

Caution: this episode is sarcasm and snark heavy but well worth the trouble. Also listen for the dog bark.


Here is the keyboard Chuck was fussing about. My Logitech k811 Bluetooth Mac Keyboard
