Some remnants of the weekend snow and ice are still on the streets of Charlotte today. I had picked up some PB&J earlier this weekend, hoping to put it to good use while crashing at a friend’s apartment (They call him Sam). Today I borrowed a knife from Sam’s silverware drawer and made seven sandwiches. … Continue reading PB&J
I shared this message on August 23rd via social media: As many of you know, I have been traveling quite a bit over the past four months. I have had opportunities to talk and meet with people in a lot of places in Europe, in a few places in Africa, in Puerto Rico, and since … Continue reading Fogginess to clarity
We only have one life. You have one life, I have one life–regardless of last name, socioeconomic status, nationality, profession, bank roll, political affiliation, vehicle type, stress experienced daily, number of social media followers or scholarly achievements hanging on the office wall, etc. Each person has one life, one opportunity, one set of numbered days … Continue reading Sólo Tenemos Una Vida
Written 04/21/16 of 04/19/16 Long story short: when I landed in Brussels, everything went smooth at the airport. The passport-checker man told me to cut my hair so I would once again look like the child in my photo. Cool detail: my mom’s neighbor handed me a few Euros before I left home, which allowed me … Continue reading L’aventure commence
I met a businessman, a lady named Esther, and a dentist, all while waiting for my first overseas flight from Newark to Brussels. I had a list of things to do that I “forgot” to do before leaving (like purchase clothes for a wedding, figure out train situation for arrival w/no phone, etc.), but I wound up … Continue reading Day 1

A couple three people actually know the behind-the-scenes details in my life. Close friends. A few family members. Half a handful of colleagues (2.5?). I thought I might catch you up, if you care to know. Here’s a glimpse of what has been going on recently in the #lifeofGreg. I had a pretty sweet gig working … Continue reading Details.
Speaking of the coming months of travel, “set in stone” is a pretty accurate way not to describe what’s on the way. Plans are fluid. Intermediate transportation is up in the air. Who I will meet is completely unknown, with the exception of a handful of former coworkers, missionary friends, and a couple that may … Continue reading Set in Stone
All 9 days of my southeastern sabbatical were good but Tuesday was better. There were highlights: Florida weather, historic sites, times of laughter, Godly conversations, card games, a sunrise over the ocean, an awesome church, and memorable meals sprinkled throughout, but Tuesday was a string of Divinity. I find it humorous because Tuesday was the … Continue reading An Atypical Tuesday
God has a plan and a purpose, even when we don’t recognize it. We get quite caught up in our desires, our schedules, our plans, our careers, our everything, and we neglect the fact that God has His hand over us and over every situation. At least I am guilty of that. I am guilty … Continue reading Cabriolet Wisdom
