Time to hit the Starting Blocks

I'm tired of languishing in this place of defeat. Bemoaning the mountain of crap that has piled on top of me, it's time to break out and fly!!! It's time to pursue my hearts desire and stop killing the vibe just as it gets started. I've learned a lot and I can put it to … Continue reading Time to hit the Starting Blocks

The Memorial that Moves Forward

Originally published in September of 2016 It's a fine line, knowing when to move on. Tragedy has a way of stopping us in our tracks, we memorialize it and are taken back to the event in a real and tangible way. Its as if we are reliving the horror once again. This activity can serve … Continue reading The Memorial that Moves Forward

A Story…How He Loves

How He Loves Today... today I was reminded of this song and the story behind it, I was moved again. I felt emotions I haven't for quite a while. You might even say that it inspired me to make a move back towards God. It's been some time since we've spoken. Please take the time … Continue reading A Story…How He Loves

Should I or shouldn’t I?

When I write it is problematic for me. It causes people to either freak out or say good job. This is my open journal of life, my thoughts, intentions, my failures and fears. I am going to take a break. When and if I feel it is time to return, I will. If not, good … Continue reading Should I or shouldn’t I?

What day is it?

I've lost track of many things with memory issues increasing. I can only assume already bad memory circuits are further depleted by prescription drugs. I have been told that I am apathetic, life interests have faded to black, my choices are poor (although that's no news flash). Yesterday I watched a documentary on Netflix that … Continue reading What day is it?

Mankind continues a decline into self-serving hedonism which will eventually consume all that is good. Every day there is more news about some segment of people being sexually harassed, tortured, … Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me

Secrets and Lies-Protecting the Abuser

I have repeatedly watched the 2015 movie "Spotlight' and read much concerning the epidemic of abusive priests in the Catholic Church. My emotions have run the gamut of anger to tears as I recall my own personal experiences of being sexually abused at the hands of my father, and the enabling of a mother who … Continue reading Secrets and Lies-Protecting the Abuser

Prayer and Presence

Prayer is a powerful tool in the arsenal of the Christian. I will not waste my precious few words here disputing that truth, that would be futile. However, I do want to challenge us in our thinking to go beyond the posture of supplication into bold and energetic action. The Holy Spirit is our intercessor with the … Continue reading Prayer and Presence

More Than You Can Handle Alone

Having an unpopular approach to the problem of porn in the church has become a badge of honor for me. Complacency and whispers aren't acceptable in my world anymore. Though I spent the better part of my church life doing everything I could do to be accepted, appreciated and respected, I am no longer bound by those … Continue reading More Than You Can Handle Alone
