Lets face it; we live in a world that needs The Light. So, I am creating a space where we can shine some light.

The internets are not usually inspiring.

So, I’ll curate a collection of posts that not only edify the reader but also glorify Jesus.

Enjoy

Cheap Dates

AdobeStock_76614283.jpegI love my wife. I am not a cheapskate. There is always an unplanned expense to put a kink in your plans. This Thursday is our anniversary and our AC is on the fritz.

So, I’m putting together a list of cheap dates. Feel free to steal these ideas. I’m really putting a list of cheap dates together as a kind of play book. When we have a chance my wife and I can pick a play and have a blast with each other.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. So, please leave your ideas in the comments.

Google Roulette

Want to live on the edge? Grab your date and make a game for you two to play. Have her pick out two action verbs, two cities within 15 minutes, and two food items. You do the same. Take your options and randomly, or purposefully link the three together.

You’ll have something like “running tacos Washington, D.C.”, or “flying pizza Orlando.” Type your phrase into google and pick the best option within the top three results.

Watch the sunset

Go mini golfing

Take photos of one another in a scenic location

Play on a playground

I feel like I should share the story behind this picture….This was taken last year, Alexander feel asleep on my shoulder after a day of exhausting frustration. It was our “final straw” day. The day he was suspend from school for things that he should have had an IEP, or at least 504, protection from. It was the day that we decided that schooling from home would be the least harmful education.
We have known that Alexander struggles with ADHD since he was very little. Our daily battles are exhausting and often times simple tasks seem impossible. It seems like we have been fighting for him since the day he started school. After 6 years of requesting an IEP from the school system we finally got it last December(2014). Ironically, it was also the day that I withdrew him from his neighborhood school and he transferred him to the virtual home school.
