These words have been rattling around in my brain as of late. I am applying them to not only myself but those who have harmed me. I admit there is some question as to whether or not any or all of them are part of my conversation. This may sound confusing, let me attempt to … Continue reading Justice, Judgement, Mercy and Forgiveness
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
So Now You’re The Judge?
A well-known Christian leader has walked away from the faith and the Christians be trippin'! Maybe you haven't noticed that people have been leaving the church since well, the beginning of churches. If there is any blame laid at the feet of Christians they rise up like a wounded tiger and scratch and claw to save … Continue reading So Now You’re The Judge?
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
When Will I Find It?
I've searched high and low, spent decades in looking for "it", still it eludes me like a sad joke. So I lift my head on another day like most of those before it with being able to somehow get out of bed and make even a little something out of this thing called life. Problem … Continue reading When Will I Find It?

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?
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
Where were you?
Where were you? You fighters for justice, when I was being sexually abused in the night. Where were you? The Church who was told, that did nothing to help the helpless? Where were you? The friends and family that saw this messed-up life and ignored the self-destruction. Where are you? The current church, who knows my past … Continue reading Where were you?
