Welcome to Meditations and Music!
Thank you for stopping by! This site and my podcast represent a converging of several of my interests:
When I was about five years old, a friend of the family gave me a large reel to reel tape recorder. I spent hours recording and playing back my recordings with it. I have been intrigued with recording ever since! It still amazes me that you can record sounds, keep them, and play them back.
With the technology that we have today, recording is so much easier than it has ever been. With today’s digital audio workstations, the sky’s the limit as to what you can record and produce right from the comfort of your own home! I am excited to be recording the narration of a book by award-winning Christian author Patrick Higgens, The Pelican Trees. It is due to be released in early summer in 2022, and will be available through Audible.com
I started playing the guitar when I was 12 years old. Since that time, I have always found it both relaxing, and challenging. I love learning new songs, chord progressions, and techniques. There are many people who are much better than I am on the guitar, but I doubt there are too many who enjoy it more than I do. I hope you enjoy the recordings that I post here, and if you do, I would love to hear from you!
I love to meditate on Scripture, journal, and share my thoughts. In fact, everything I share here has its roots in what I believe. It is my passion, and foundation. I believe the Bible is the very Word of the Living God, and that He actually speaks through His Word. I have been reading the Bible for over 50 years, and countless times the Lord has used His Word to speak to me about situations I have been facing in my life. I also enjoy meditating on nature, technology, history, and many other things. I am thankful for a way to share my meditations with others on this site.
For the last 22 years, I have had a great interest in web design. It still excites me that I can do something, right in my home, that can be seen around the world! What a wonderful time to be alive! I now make my living designing, hosting, and maintaining websites. I have the privilege of serving over 50 clients. You can check out my company website here.
Currently, I am blessed to live in Billings, Missouri with my wife of over 40 years, Holly, and our cat, Chloe, who is kind enough to allow us to live with her. We are thankful to be the parents of 4 children, and 18 grandchildren, (8 of whom live next door to us with our son and daughter-in-law). We love living in the Ozarks. My wife and I enjoy taking rides through the mountains. We enjoy the beautiful scenery our area affords.
Thank you again for stopping by!
