How I got started on this adventure

Several years ago I had a job as a Technical Writer.  I was doing a lot of work with screen prints that proved to be cumbersome when inserting images into my documents.  I began a search for software that would make this portion of my job a little easier.  I had a program called Snagit loaded on my PC.  To increase my familiarity with this program, I began sending screen captures with the daily Dilbert comic to a couple of my friends with a short Proverb or quote by email.  

Over time the list of friends grew to approximately 100.  The company I work for caught on to the large number of “Dilbert” emails coming into the corporate network and began to block it.

To get around this, I started Blogging.  My first Blog site was with a company that offered free services.  That company soon sold out and the new owner did not like free blogging.  My next step was a move to WordPress and I started the Morning Story and Dilbert Blog.

I was recently asked the following question; “Where do you get such a great supply of stories?”,  and responded with; “I search the internet for stories that touch my heart.  When they really tug at my emotions, I rate it as “Dilbert Material”.  And if you notice the characteristics of the stories reflect strong Christian values.  I believe the good Lord sends me the right stories to be published in His timing!!!!  And one more thing or confession, most of these stories make me either laugh, cry, or experience feelings that are just to hard to explain.  It’s all about what I said earlier “Dilbert Material”.

Thanks for stopping by and checking the site out!!!

…and remember if you can’t sleep, don’t count sheep, talk to the Shepherd!

God Bless,

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and liking a post!! Can’t wait to read more of yours!!

  4. I have loved Dilbert since I was about 9, when my parents got it on some odd free magazine in Costa Rica. It changed my life in certain ways, definitely helped me develop a different sense of humor. I’m glad I found your blog, I can’t promise to read every single story, but I will definitely check out the comic strips ♥

  6. What a great idea! Dilbert and a wonderful story you have found. Thank you for liking my post about the loss of my cat, because of that I have found your blog! Mutual benefit. I look forward to more. kg

    • Hey Michelle, It is truly an honor to be nominated for this award!!!! Thank you so much!!! Take Care and God Bless :-) Kenny T

  7. I’ve been in and out of your blog over the past few years and enjoy it, always. I’m saturated in the Alzheimer’s world, but the break reading your blog is refreshing. Thank-you for caring enough to share, I do talk to the Shepherd when I can’t sleep at night!

  8. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Feels happy and great. Loved your blog, i am a follower now.
    I hope you will visit back my blog soon and find posts for a good read.


  9. This is a comment I am giving to ALL the past WP Blogs I used to follow and the links I used to post because of your site. I am the Pastor of Oasis Bible Ministry and I have been away from WordPress for about a year to 14 months. Due to health and computer problems both, I had to quit for a while, but the Lord has been speaking to my heart to get back and do what HE asked me to do. So, I am in the process of doing a new blog, “For the Love of God” under the outreach of Oasis Bible Ministry.

    I am sorry for not being able to let anyone know until now, but I do apologize as so many of you had visited and of course, through that, the Holy Spirit led me to your sites. One of the reasons, I am writing a letter as a form for all, is because I am going through the links I have from before and with your permission, posting them on my blog on a links page. Some of you may already be in the “Blogs I Follow” section, but since it only holds 50 and I like so many more, I thought it is only fitting to make a separate page for the rest of the blogs I like.

    I believe in Body Ministry and gifts that the Holy Spirit equips everybody who calls Christ Jesus Lord, and therefore, it is only fitting to let others see what the Holy Spirit is doing in other areas of His Church. Please believe me; this is NOT an attempt to draw anyone back. That is between the person and the Lord. He called me to do what I do as He called each of you. I just have to do what He says, it is up to Him to draw people to His Word as He gifts me.

    Again, sorry for the inconvenience of those who followed me and then ended up with a “blank gravatar” for I do sincerely apologize. But, I do sincerely pray God’s richest blessings on each of you AND if per chance, you do NOT want me to post your link, I will remove it per your wishes. Again, thanks AND again, God bless you!
    P.S. I’ve missed a lot of Dilbert! Unfortunately NOT a lot of coffee! Looking forward to catching up! I’m placing your link on a Links Page so if you would rather I didn’t, please let me know! God bless! — Roland

    • Good Morning Roland, It will be an honor to be on your “Links Page”.

      I am glad to hear your good health report!!!!! and that the coffee did not go lacking…. :-)

      Take Care my Friend and may God truly Bless you in all things :-) Kenny T

    Hi Kenny! Just wanted to step out of blog retirement for a minute to say many, many thanks for all the reblogs! I never would’ve been able to reach out to so many people. I prayed, and God used you and your blog to extend the reach of the testimonies I shared on my site. I was greatly encouraged by everyone who came by and commented. God bless you!

  13. Hi Kenny,
    I was so honored to be included on MSD last month (the “we invented Christmas” post) and I enjoy reading your a daily posts. I like too that they get delivered a little earlier now (not at midnight PST anymore!) anyway, I was wondering whether this story might fit with your MSD audience. It came to mind again this week and I thought I would share it with you:

  19. Hello. Kind of you to stop by Papa’s Frog and liking the post on Miscarriage, thank you. Taking a look at the material you post I found inspiration and will surely check back. I enjoyed the quote you ended with on your About page – …and remember if you can’t sleep, don’t count sheep, talk to the Shepherd! I would like to add that to my collection if you have no objections and always like to give credit where credit is due; is this a quote by you or someone else? A beautiful day to you!

    • This is not my original…. I worked with a guy in the Kansas City area several years back and I heard him use the phase once and it just stuck like glue!!! LOL So, you can use it anytime and anyplace!!!

      You can use anything from the MS&D blog….

      Take Care and God Bless :-) Kenny T
