Too Much Good?

Posted onJuly 31, 2015 | by: Dustin Blumer | 0 comments

I recently had a great week! Our family got a little kitty. We named him Heman after an 80's cartoon I grew up with. And Heman is awesome! He plays well, and he is good with our kids. Not only that but he sits on my tummy and purrs. Ahh, good stuff. Beyond the cat I was mowing the lawn, and then out of nowhere my wife offers to finish mowing the lawn for me. Talk about awesome. And the weather was good, and I was thinking about all the good things God has given me. I could go on....Keep Reading

I was reading a little about the Tour de France coming up here July 4th. Do you want to guess how many miles long it is? 2,200 miles. That's insane! I was also reading that in order to stay healthy the bikers must eat between 6,000 - 9,000 calories a day. I personally don't know about all that biking, but eating that much sounds like fun....Keep Reading

Impact of the Reformation

In the house I grew up in the major celebration at the end of October was...the Reformation. Yep. Now I still went trick or treating, and had a lot of fun going as a football player and a cowboy. But that was the low key event compared to our celebration of the Reformation at church. Halloween and decorating my house with the Luther’s seal painted on the front lawn and blaring...Keep Reading

I love vending machines. I don’t know if I would have made it through high school without them. I remember getting sodas like Surge and Josta (now relics of the past) and of course Mountain Dew to get me through the day....Keep Reading

How Good Is Good Enough?

I’ll never forget taking my ACT’s. Boy, am I glad that’s over. I have empathy for all our Lincolnway students who may be stressed out over that massive test. For me, my goal in taking the ACT’s was simple - I needed to get a 24 or better. 24 was all that was required for the college I was looking to get into. 24 was it. The good thing is I did good enough. I scored a 24 and never looked back....Keep Reading

Getting Unstuck

Posted onJanuary 17, 2014 | by: Dustin Blumer | 0 comments

Driving last week sure was crazy. Cold and snow equal slipping and sliding, at least for my small car. I was driving home on the ramp for I-355 when I saw a car stuck way down off the onramp. I looked at the amount of snow the car was suck in, and the distance from the road, and the steep incline to get back up and I wondered, "How is that car ever going to get unstuck?" ...Keep Reading
