Know that above the fog that starts your day, there is a beautiful glowing light waiting to shine through. If you keep your head above the clouds you will always feel the warmth of that glow.
Golden Gate Bridge South Tower at dawn last weekend ....
To the One who knows all things, brings all things into existence, and holds all things together ... hope your night is a peaceful one.

Second, I'm married to a great gal named Mary Beth, the love of my life for 31 years now and the fantastic mother of my children. Who are those children you may ask?? ... Well there's daughter Lauren and three sons Tyler, Alan and Kyle; all great kiddos out of the house and moving forward with their own lives. Lauren is a graphic designer and branding specialist (Lauren Hanley Design ... see link below if you're interested!), Tyler is a transportation designer (with General Motors). Alan an IT recruiter (with Apex Inc.), and Kyle is a video communications/graphic design professional (Alan and Kyle were also former Penn State Volleyball players). And now there's daughter Lauren and husband John's first child, and our first grandchild, Jacob Hanley in the mix (born July 1, 2012)!
Third, I'm President of Graywolf Financial Services, serving the Greater Rochester, NY business community (and beyond!) with great professional business finance and accounting services. I provide QuickBooks accounting systems ProAdvisor services, accounting and payroll services, business finance consulting, and business plan preparation. You can find out more about what I do to "earn a living" at www.gwfinsvcs.com.
Fourth, I'm a "rainbow-man" when it comes to heritage and culture. My ancestry includes a variety of nationalities and colors ... Native American (Narragansett Tribe of Southern Rhode Island), African-American, Euro-American (English and French) and traces of others. Though I understand the reality and importance of cultural and social distinctions in my own life and the lives of others, those distinctives always take a back seat to the spiritual reality of who I am and how my Creator views me. I can truly say with the Apostle Paul:
I enjoy road bicycling, walking, golfing (working on my game feverishly!), model railroading (and watching the real thing ... rail-fan), reading widely, growing spiritually and professionally (and helping others do the same), and watching good football, basketball and volleyball (son Kyle currently plays for the Penn State V-Ball team; son Alan graduated this past spring and also played).
I love, love, love to listen to a mix of good smooth jazz and contemporary christian music tracks (sprinkle in some good R&B and country tunes too!), and taking in the sights and sounds of the beauty of nature (and enjoying great pics from those who capture it by camera).
