“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.”— Ralph Waldo Emerson We all have seasons of doubt and uncertainty in our lives. We look down every avenue hoping to find an answer or glimpse of hope in our current circumstances. Life feels so … Continue reading It’s Inside

I persevered until I got a satisfactory solution. I realized this about myself sometime ago. I … Continue reading The Sweet Satisfaction of Solving the Problem
I opened my blog today after ignoring it for quite some time. As you well know we've been in a pandemic situation for the last year. This post was written and awaiting publishing just about the time the world freaked out.

Maybe that makes me a bad person, a bad Christian, a human, honest, I don't even know anymore... I have never stopped believing in You... I just stopped believing that saying … Continue reading Hear My Cry

I would have, without question, made everything all better for him. When I heard … Continue reading The Good, Good Father.

That's it. That is my motto right now. It's not easy, but it's a life saver. A few months ago I woke up to the reality that my attitude was making life harder than it had to be. I was speaking so much shit and shit is what I was getting back. I know that … Continue reading Be The Sunshine
