LOSS OF LIFE, LOSS OF TRUTH

I lost my best friend of 11 years recently. She didn’t die. She just decided she didn’t want to be friends with me anymore. The problem is that I have no idea why she no longer wants to be my friend. She just turned 60. Is that the reason? Because I’m much younger than her? […]

My 600-Pound Life

  Anyone ever watch this show and think, “That could be me”? I do. Instead, I’m a workout fiend. I’m glad I chose that route instead of over-eating. This way, no one notices me and they certainly can’t tell when I’m hurting. Very stealth. That’s me; stealth. People who have been abused or are wounded […]

BEING ALONE

I know I am not the only one who is alone in this world, but I am one of the few who is willing to write about it. It’s embarrassing to admit and I can already feel judgments coming from cowards hiding behind their computers. This is not a poor me piece. It’s just me […]

CREATED EQUALLY. DEFINITELY.

Watched a new movie on HBO last night called “True Detective”. It’s interesting how these two detectives become so emotionally involved-and messed up because of the very dark things they see. What bothers me the most is how men are consistently portrayed as if they are unemotional and unaffected by things.  Truth be told, they […]

FEARFULLY HONEST OR COURAGEOUS LIAR

Life is interesting.  Or at least it can be, depending on where we’re at mentally right now. I am a bit of a loner (actually, quite a bit) and I’m not ashamed or embarrassed to admit it.  I like people, I care about them, but I don’t need them and sometimes it’s even difficult for […]

TRUTH OR THEORY

Now that we are entering in to 2014, I’m wondering how many of you are like me; wondering if things are going to change for the better in our lives with the new year. I’ve been fasting-countless times-praying and seeking God as I read the word.  It’s been year after year after year, but nothing […]

GOD IS NOT A SUPERHERO

Do you ever notice in superhero movies how the superhero who comes to save the day always gets the crap beat out of him by the enemy?  The superhero eventually prevails, but not before losing a few battles first.  When I see that, my faith is shaken.  I am no longer confident that a superhero […]

THE CHOICES WE MAKE

As I opened the book I was about to read, a small card fell out of it.  It was from the Murrays, the gunman’s parents. So was the book. “Pain, Perplexity and Promotion” was also from them to me as a gift one year after the shooting.  But it was the card I needed to […]

The Desires of Our Heart

I love the law.  I love it because to me, the law represents safety, order and structure.  It is the total absence of chaos. Yet all around us, the world is filled with chaos.  For example, people fail to obey red lights as if they have no regard whatsoever for human life.  It’s all about […]
