Darkness Does Not Decide

Jason asked me about the memoir today. I told him not so much these days. Jon Acuff's Finish inspired me briefly, but alas it fell by the wayside again. You cannot expect greatness in any endeavor when you only do it when inspired. I think Jon has said and written that many times. Jason has … Continue reading Darkness Does Not Decide


Making Them Happy

Bill Cosby said a sure fire way to failure is to make everyone happy. It's impossible to please everyone all the time, and when you live a life of walking on egg shells your guaranteed to live a life of quiet desperation. The other extreme is the self centered attitude of those who seriously don't … Continue reading Making Them Happy

Journal Entry: Church

I used to date my journal entries when I kept an ink and paper journal, but as I'm inspired by All Things Steph I'm going to start titling posts with random bits of drivel Journal Entry. Thank you Steph. I'm not at all saying Steph's blog is "random bits of drivel" because it seems quite … Continue reading Journal Entry: Church

His Will For Mankind

Thank you Joe Beam for writing Seeing The Unseen. It gives me hope in light of the evil I face. Language is important when battling evil. The reason the Bible is living and active is because it's message is continually creating language such that is found in books like Seeing The Unseen. I'm not saying … Continue reading His Will For Mankind

Seinfeld Moments

This life is anything but boring it seems to me. I suppose for some it has been uneventful and routine because Seinfeld made a fortune off of a show about nothing. But my life is anything but dull. I've strived for dullness for lack of a better word because it seems my family of origin … Continue reading Seinfeld Moments

An Apologetic

Today's Jesus Calling (June 10) reminded me of a class I had in college. Doug Varnado taught a class called Christian Mind and Devotional Life for 3 hours credit, and it was during that semester that a song really came to light deeply on my heart and mind. Here are the lyrics. I just want … Continue reading An Apologetic

True Peace

A sense of humor is important, but there are some subjects within the context of community and more personal relationships when it's too early to laugh. I do not need to take myself so seriously that I can't laugh at myself, but there is a time to take myself seriously as it pertains to overcoming … Continue reading True Peace


  Crafting something from nothing has always intrigued me. The book Free Play was introduced to me a few years ago, and even though it's premise is improv the principles can be applied outside of acting. I've found a new place in the house to read and write. It's our music room. It's where my … Continue reading Improv

Checks and Balances

I've been contemplating the system of checks and balances that are in place on this global village. It becomes even smaller as I zero in on this city, but it enlarges when I see the reach my circle of influence connects. I begin with myself circa 2006. I'm a bulk merchandiser with a Coca-Cola bottling … Continue reading Checks and Balances
