My name is Tim Patterson. I am a husband, father, Southern Baptist Minister, and Network Administrator/Engineer. I currently work at North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC. Erin is my wife and Veronica my daughter is just something special. I like reading, discussing theology, photography, sports, and being a couch potato when time permits.

Why Apparent Contradictions?

I have based a large part of my life on the premise that two statements that contradict one another cannot both be true. I am also aware that I sometimes live a life that seems inconsistent with this belief. Often times this creates apparent contradictions. I am now inviting you to be apart of them.

Thank Goodness This Week is Finally Over.

What a terribly long week this has been.  I am not sure if it has been this way for everyone, but this has been a relentlessly long, relentlessly taxing, strange week.

Several nights I have worked until 2 or 3 in the morning after working all day long during normal business hours.  I have stayed in my office until 10:30.  I have went to infuriating school meeting for my child (that blog post will come soon).  I have neglected family and tried to be there when my mind is near collapse or when I am really other places.  I have longed for intimacy (not that way).  I have been successful in ways I never really thought I could.  I have endured, persevered, and thrived.  I have stumbled, failed, and faltered.

I guess this week means I have lived!
