Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Not much new to say, just wanted to let you all know that I did some more reminiscing and posted a brief outline with commentary about my life from 2005 through the present, which I’ve spent in Trenton, NJ. I gave the page the scintillating title of Jon Carl in Trenton. On the page, I talk about some of the places I’ve been and things I’ve done while living in New Jersey’s capital city. I cant believe its been over ten years, and I feel like I’m just getting settled in and finding my way. Continue reading “Updates at joncarllewis.com! (29 June 2016)”
Why this sudden flurry of activity?
Well, I just got married on 18 June 2016 and I realized how many wonderful people are in my life and how many wonderful experiences I’ve had that I want to recall and remember. And I’d like to do some of that recalling and remembering here.
The story is incomplete and patchy at the moment, but as time goes on, I’ll fill in the colors of the mosaic of my life at joncarllewis.com.
Thanks for coming along on the journey.
