About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.

What a Weekend

Schizophrenia

Stepping Back a Bit


Sometimes it pays to step back from the rush that can happen when we get busy. Several years ago I crashed from “doing” instead of “being”. I’ve found myself approaching that edge over the last few weeks and it begs … Continue reading

She Went on a New Journey


Some days I write from my head. Some days I write from my heart. Today, I write from my heart. I am sad today. Not for myself, but from a loss. I reconnected with many of my friends and family … Continue reading

Family

Not Just Another Day


How many times have you heard the phrase “Just another day”? The connotation of that is to say all the days leading up to this day are all the same and it’s just another one of those days like any … Continue reading

Where Do You Walk?


This will be a short post today. This thought came from a post on FB. Romans 8:1 – “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the … Continue reading

The Day of Vengeance


For some reason this morning God took me to Jeremiah 51. It pertains to the desolation of Babylon. My mind wants to overlay it with our country’s present situation. Can it be? We’ve wasted our inheritance in the last twenty … Continue reading
