Wayne Ritchie Prayer Request

As we draw closer to next steps I would ask that prayer be specific as it relates to the following – Doctor Wisdom  The doctor’s are amazed at his recovery. The word ‘miracle’ has been said numerous times, this will be a great testimony. There is also some discussion of what to do next, physical…

“Are you saved?” Asked the preacher. Wayne Ritchie is back

Going back to work has been an interesting experience.  I know my dad is getting better but it has still been hard to focus these last few days.  This morning while in a sales meeting I received a text that the breathing tube had been removed.  Such a great moment but my emotions were mixed…

“Say ‘no’ without hesitation”

Well, it’s been a week.  One week ago today we brought my dad into the hospital.  The nurses that were here that first night are starting a new shift and some were surprised and pleased to see that he is still with us. A little information about myself, I’m a people watcher.  I like to…

Today my dad looked at me

The morning started with some hoops.  I needed it, I needed to run so my emotions would settle down.  Last night was tough, we were all tired and getting a little bit of cabin fever in our quiet room.  (Feel free to visit us at Evergreen Hospital). The sleeping arrangements were miserable but Chris had…

Wayne Ritchie Update

Last night was a long night.  We received word from Doctor Wu in the afternoon that we will not see a significant improvement with his lungs clearing out.  The Doctor was short on smiles and long on facts. I wanted to spend the night at home so I left around 7:30 pm and while driving…

The Million Dollar Man

Growing up I used to watch a show called The Six Million Dollar Man.  It was great, Steve Austin would save the day time and time again. In my teenage years I used to love the WWF, it was less about smut and more about the story lines with their wrestlers.  Ted DiBiase, The Million…

It’s confirmed: Bonafide Miracle

It’s been a long day today.  My brother arrived this morning about 10:00 am and we talked through some of the stuff that had occurred last night.  The response to my experience with this morning’s blog has been overwhelming and there are many that would like an update, we don’t really have one but something…

My dad died last night yet this morning he lives

As I opened my car door I thought I heard crying.  It was 8:40 pm on Friday, October 11, 2013 and I had just gotten some Udon soup (to go) from the local teriyaki restaurant.  The closer I came to the front door the more I knew something was wrong.  Lorelai was crying hysterically as…

“Unless You Change”

For my bible reading today I read some of Matthew 18 and this is what jumped out at me. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of…

Read this blog

I don’t care who you are or what you believe in.  The simple fact remains you will not find peace with your self.  The “I was born this way” card has been played over and over and it’s simply not true.  There is so much that goes into who you are with layer and layer…

Produce Fruit in keeping with repentance

I’m going to stop reading the Bible via YouVersion. As much as I really dig YouVersion it’s not a good witness to my children.  You see my kids notice that I love football because I watch so much of it.  They know I love basketball because I play it all the time.  My kids see…
