Why do victims of violence have to get over stuff? Why are those who perpetrate violence getting away with it? This is the essence of my post today. Those who've gotten over something wonder why others continue to struggle with it. They can't understand why someone who has been severely traumatized won't let go. Here's … Continue reading Where Is the Justice?
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?
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?
If you haven't read the controversial tweets from James Gunn, take a moment and find them, they are easily available.

I enjoy watching Adam Richman attempt to consume mass quantities of food, and the entertaining way the show is presented. Each episode features local restaurants … Continue reading Man Vs ?
Could it be that political correctness has spilled over into the church and we don't ask the tough questions or confront the issues that make the asker or hearer uncomfortable? How can we talk about the church, speak of its growth, and what the church "needs" to be in this present age and NOT address our own hidden … Continue reading Yes its Sin, say the word.
As is often the case, my waking thoughts will be the ones that are some of the most crucial I have in the processing of life. For some reason I was tasked with remembering how addiction gained its foothold, and has fought to never give up its place. Several things immediately came to mind.

It's hard not to be a hypocrite. We want to save the branding iron for those who do things blatantly against professed beliefs, running them through the chute, pressing that hot iron into their flesh and sending them out into the pasture. But every one of us has things in our lives that are hypocritical … Continue reading Rooting Out The Hypocrite in All of Us
