Seasons Change

I received the letter and avoided the phone call concerning the pathology results from my colonoscopy. My polyps were precancerous, they were caught in time and therefor didn't develop to their full potential. Thats good news; the only downside is my new schedule for testing, it has been moved up to every 3 years. Next … Continue reading Seasons Change

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?

It has been a difficult transition going back to work and I haven't been writing much lately but just wanted to share a tidbit with you.

The Holy Spirit is our intercessor with the … Continue reading Prayer and Presence

Donald Trump: A Commentary on our Society at Large

I am surprised by the shock shown by so many people when it comes to Donald Trump and his presidential bid. Why? Because it is a direct reflection of our society as it stands today.

The Table is Set…

We gather every Sunday to worship God. Our songs plead for mercy and we agree on our mutual, desperate brokenness. We admit our inability to live in a holy and righteous way without Jesus, and yearn for a closeness and bond with our heavenly Father that is unmatched here on this temporal plane. We use the words of lovers, … Continue reading The Table is Set…
