A few days ago my friend informed me his wife caught him wayyy too drunk over the weekend. In his own words they had an intervention. He cried; he asked for help; she poured beer down the sink. . . The whole nine yards. I felt relieved that I could finally talk to him about … Continue reading Whether to Get Involved
Hey hey! I’m really happy you’re here; if this is your first time just know you’re welcome. Most of what I talk about ends up linking to faith (whether I mean for it to or not), but if you’re not on the same wavelength there’s still a chair for you. No one expects you to … Continue reading The Principle of the Path: a Prison or Freedom
Hey hey! How's it going? If this is your first time, or your first time in a while, welcome! I won't keep you long today; I just mainly want to say: WOW. What a year huh? 2020 started out for me with things be-bopping along as usual. I never thought a few months later I … Continue reading Freaking 2020
I used to spend as much time outdoors as I could doing virtually anything, so long as I had a partner in crime. I don’t know for sure what happened... I think it was “adulting” that ruined it. I remember having to create a new email address once I “moved back inside” because I didn’t … Continue reading Been Outside Lately?
I find it incredibly difficult to write when I can’t think of something to passionately pen words about. What do you do when things aren’t flowing?
--What the fu&% are you looking at? I will beat your ass.--Cody-esque I think, perhaps -- hopefully, I can finally move on. I'm not sure what the pastor said, something related to love (not bullies) . . . and yet my brain, in its spider-web way took me back to middle school. I first put … Continue reading On Bullies and Justice
There’s a word which could change the world as we know it. There are probably several, but oh how we need this one. No. A young boy is on the playground with his buddies, who are making fun of him about a sore subject. Typically he wouldn’t care and give it right back, but this … Continue reading No: The Word The World Needs
Today’s topic is a life trick I’ve discovered and considered a lot recently; I’m thoroughly convinced it will work well for nearly everyone. It makes me better at life, and life is better. If your wants and desires by nature always guide you to outcomes you enjoy, then this post isn't for you. Congratulations! Have … Continue reading More Joy and Less Regret
I’m back! Last weekend was consumed by my water heater, which I ultimately gave up on and replaced, so I couldn’t find time to post. I’d like to add to the Why Follow Jesus series today (first post Here). I realize I live in a post-Christian time; most have “been there, heard that, done that.” … Continue reading Your Objections to Christianity Don’t Have to Keep You From Jesus
I’d like to share a trick with anyone else who finds falling asleep difficult. It’s really just a pick and choose from meditation. I seldom go by “recipes” but rather borrow and modify. I’ve dealt with anxiety for as long as I can remember but used to fall asleep easily. I’ve had to make adjustments … Continue reading Anxious Sleepers
