So being a morning person I really don’t understand all the hype about sunsets, sure they are beautiful but to me sunrise is so much more amazing. Waking at 5AM to run🏃, cycle 🚴 or hike ⛰, the cool morning air instantly wakes me up. Every time out, I get to see rabbits, hawks, coyotes, bobcats and last week for the first time an owl gliding past me, probably going after one of those delicious rabbits. It is quiet, which allows me to clear my head and start my day in the calming natural surroundings. As the sun rises and envelops me it is a reminder to be thankful to the Lord for all the blessings he has bestowed on me and for giving me one more day on this Earth. Lamentations 3: 22-23 The favors of the Lord are not exhausted, his mercies are not spent; They are renewed each morning, so great is his faithfulness. #blessed
I can’t help but be excited for the start of my 3rd year teaching Confirmation 2 classes! What I have seen from these High School students is INSPIRING and that like us all they are yearning for the JOY that only Jesus can bring to your life. I ask that everyone keep me and my students in your prayers so the Holy Spirit can continue to inspire others through me. #sbdiocese #sanbernardinodiocese #dynamiccatholic #decisionpoint #thebestversionofyourself #catholic
What a difference a year makes!!! The first day of 7th grade versus the first day of 8th grade. I love watching Vincent grow and pray that Jesus will always be a guiding presence in his life.
Out of all the beautiful moments this past week in Pittsburgh my favorite was of my Parents holding their newest granddaughter. To me it shows the Beauty and Joy in life, be it a newborn dependent on her parents or a couple in their Twilight years, all life is precious and a gift from God. I thank @immenselyamanda and @dsites5 for the honor of being The Godfather of Piper Rose 🌹.
You had me at chorizo ❤️!!! Enjoying my Cuban Omelet with mariquitas and Triple Cortadito ☕️ @merenguebakery this morning. #merenguebakery
After talking to a friend about healthy lifestyle choices he told me to check out @theatpproject Podcasts. Listened to the first one this evening about Intermittent Fasting and had to share. I hope all of them are this interesting!!! I plan on living to 120 so love to learn about what is and is not healthy. #theatpproject

With today being the second to last game of the World Cup and a Saturday my wife spoiled us with lunch and dinner. For our Victorious Belgium 🇧🇪 we have La Mitraillette with Andalouse Sauce and a Stella Artois for lunch. Dinner for our fourth place English 🏴 was Bangers & Mash with a Samuel Smith Lager. Lastly with today being Bastille Day 🇫🇷 we had a delicious French pastry from Rancho Cucamonga’s own French Bakery and Cafe served on our 🐓 plater. It was served with Perrier and had our mini Eiffel Tower gracing the table. The last picture is to show that my work begins after dinner but done with a smile 😃 on my face after a fabulous day of eating!!! #worldcup #fifaworldcup2018

Today’s nod to the World Cup. Carne Asada Tacos, Refried beans, guacamole and Brazilian 🇧🇷 cheese bread(yes my wife was laughing as she put two balls on my plate). Refreshing Stella Artois🇧🇪 and Mineral Water from Mexico 🇲🇽. To finish the meal cookies filled with Belgium chocolate. Nothing from Japan 🇯🇵 today but it isn’t that easy mixing food from four different countries without making your stomach upset with you 😂. #worldcup #fifaworldcup2018
