Thanks for visiting my home on the web. I began creating this website in 1999, after taking a few computer classes in my home state of Rhode Island. It began as just something to give me practice in writing computer code, but it slowly evolved into what you see today. When you click on a link, you will be immediately sent you to a room full of great treasure; that is, the Word of God. I pray that you can hear God speaking to you as you spend time here. He is knocking on the door of your heart. I hope you invite him in.

And finally, I hope you enjoy your visit and that you will come back again. You are always a welcome guest here at my home on the web. The door is wide open for all to enter. For now...

 

Thanks for visiting and come back soon!

 

Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near.

Isaiah 55:6

 

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears
my voice and opens the door, I will come in...

Revelation 3:20

 

Come, all you who are thirsty.

1 John 4:10

Interests
Music

I especially enjoy listening to Christian and classical music. If you like classical music, you might appreciate a weekly radio series called From the Top that showcases the nation's most exceptional pre-college age musicians.

 

Music notes

 

The Lord will take great delight in you, he will quiet you
with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

 

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and
clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be
silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.

Psalm 30:11 - 12

 

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to
stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a
hymn of praise to our God.

Psalms 40:2 - 3

 

 

Whale Watching

It was a great experience as there was no shortage of whales breaking the surface of the water. We also saw an ocean sunfish [mola mola] drifting near the surface of the water. It was a fun way to spend a few hours on a hot summer day.

Jonah ran away
from the LORD and
headed for Tarshish. But
the Lord provided a great fish
to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was
inside the fish three days and three nights.

Jonah 1:3 and 17

From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God.
He said: In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry.

Jonah 2:1 - 2

 

 

Astronomy

I like to gaze at the stars on a clear, dark night. How can anyone NOT believe in the existence of a living God after witnessing such an awesome display? Click on any star in the picture below to learn what the Bible has to say about the universe.

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?

Fishing

I enjoy both fresh and salt water fishing. My favorite fish is ...ah... fried.

Come, follow me, Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men.

Mark 1:17

 

 

Gardening

Gardening is a fun hobby. For many years I grew all kinds of flowers and vegetables in my yard. And for some reason, vegetables taste better when you grow them yourself.

 

All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers
of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever.

1 Peter 1:24 - 25

 

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots
by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves
are always green. It has no worries in a year of
drought and never fails to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7 - 8

 

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But
his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he
meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted
by streams of water, which yields its fruit in
season and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

Psalm 1:1 - 3

 

 

Baseball

I waited patiently for many years for the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series. Then in 2004, an unexpected thing happened. The Sox took the World Series by soundly defeating the Cardinals four games to none in the best-of-seven series. World Series Championship was also repeated by Boston in 2007, 2013 and 2018.

Babe Ruth

Babe Ruth Babe Ruth might have become the greatest player Boston would ever have, if not for what Red Sox fans could point to as the single worst event ever to occur in the team's history, in 1917.That year the team was purchased by one H. Harrison Frazee, a theatrical producer who loved baseball but loved Broadway more. He saw the Red Sox as a means of financing his theatrical operations, and began selling off all of his best players to Colonel Jacob Ruppert, owner of the New York Yankees, to raise cash for a number of Broadway ventures. Babe Ruth became victim to this practice in 1920, when Frazee sold him to Ruppert for $125,000.

Ruth led the Yankees to seven American League championships and four World Series titles. He led the league in home runs many times, and the 60 he hit in 1927 set a record for the 154-game season. (Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in a 162-game season in 1961.) Ruth's lifetime total of 714 home runs is second only to the 755 hit by Hank Aaron. With a .342 lifetime batting average for 22 seasons of play, many consider Babe Ruth the game's greatest player.

The Red Sox were devastated from the loss of Babe Ruth. They had won five of the first fifteen World Series, but would not even play in another for 28 years! Before 2004, they had not won a World Series since 1918.

Do you know that in a race all the runners run, but
only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do
it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

1 Corinthians 9:24 - 25

 

I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that
day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

2 Timothy 4:7 - 8

 

 

Employment

Computer Programmer/Analyst - My responsibilities include writing and maintaining computer software for the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training. I have been working for the State of Rhode Island since 1988.

 

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working
for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will
receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Colossians 3:23 - 24

 

You may say to yourself, My power and the strength of my hands have
produced this wealth for me.
But remember the LORD your God,
for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth...
