As I was saying… wait… what was I saying?

I truly enjoy a good movie. I mean, you know, I can really disappear into the well told narrative of a two hour motion picture. I enjoy a good book, as well, mind you. Yet, my brain has always raced – way too fast – for me to sit in the same location for anyContinue reading “As I was saying… wait… what was I saying?”

“650 words or less”, He said

I don’t put much forethought into writing. I no longer struggle with afterthought, too much, either. God simply places something on my heart to “say”, then, depending on my distance to the keyboard, I begin typing. Most of the time, I don’t even know where the journey will take me. Sometimes, I spend a day,Continue reading ““650 words or less”, He said”

Know Who You Are

But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each hisContinue reading “Know Who You Are”

Lofty Opinions

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 esv Man, let me tell ya… I am currently in the process of “retraining” my mind. I know, I know… I just lost a few folks there. And, some of you (especially theContinue reading “Lofty Opinions”

Trusting the Seasons

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;Continue reading “Trusting the Seasons”

You Have An Enemy

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.Continue reading “You Have An Enemy”

But, God… (Part III)

Soldiering 101, in a nut shell, is about completing the mission at hand. The Army vigorously indoctrinates the idiom “Intestinal Fortitude” into soldiers facing chaos-induced internal conflict during these missions. “Finding courage” is the common terminology. What they fail to teach, however, is how to find that courage. Their instruction repetitively drills the proper useContinue reading “But, God… (Part III)”

But, God… (Part One)

The glaring disparity between today’s all-volunteer American military versus my reasons for serving in uniform is painstakingly obvious to me – thirty years later. My motive for enlisting in the United States Army had nothing, at all, to do with patriotism. I wasn’t looking for something greater than myself to serve, back then. I wasContinue reading “But, God… (Part One)”

Jeremiah 29:11

Meldie was mentoring my ex-wife through bible scripture when I first met her. “Gus”, my ex, gave me fair warning before I first laid my eyes upon her. “I have to tell you: Meldie is GORGEOUS! Her and I go to Church together. She will be with me when you and Emma get here.”, GusContinue reading “Jeremiah 29:11”
