The River

Life flows like a river with all the obstacles one would expect to encounter along the way. Rocks, trees and garbage dumped into its fluidity. Sometimes the water flows very slowly and at other times it rampages at a breakneck speed. It can be fraught with danger and also very boring depending on where you … Continue reading The River

Why is it…?

There are moments when life seems easy. Simple pleasures that block the pain and regret. Why can't they be more often and less sporadic. I just had a moment, it was a relief, it honestly felt spectacular. Just as quickly though it faded. Do you feel this way? I cannot believe I am the only … Continue reading Why is it…?

Who Shall Help the Helpless?

I was wondering today... am I the helpless or the helper? I do not know the answer. Sometimes I feel like I am the least of those able to provide strength and truth to the lives of others.

Then there is dealing with … Continue reading Back to Work

Staying Open to the Supernatural

I’m Sorry, I Don’t Have Time

Years ago I attended a small church and had for a long time. I was socially challenged, a loner with aspirations in a congregation of 70 people, four of which were my family. I desired to develop a relationship with the worship leader after having been a part of the team for several years. I put … Continue reading I’m Sorry, I Don’t Have Time
