It’s Over

So I finally ended it. At long last, I ended it. I broke up with the woman I have been with for a……….ridiculous amount of years. I’m sad. Way more than I thought I’d be. At first, I thought I was sad because she was hurt………….but I’m just sad because she’s gone. She and I…

The Storm

When a storm hits there is destruction and mayhem. There is calamity and confusion. The storm gives no concern whether you were prepared for it or not. It comes, it destroys, it bellows, and it moves. It leaves you in shambles and fragmented with no instructions on how to go on, yet regardless of it…

‘Twas: A Single Man’s Lament

‘Tis the month before Christmas and all through my mind; Are the thoughts of the emptiness that Christmas now finds.  As the hope of Christmas cheer grinds to a halt; My kids just don’t get it and perhaps that’s my fault. After all, they think Christmas is a trip to the mall; And when I…

I Have Learned………..

…that envy is a BIG waste of time.    …that jealousy is a BIGGER waste of time.    …that fear is the BIGGEST waste of time.    …that only a tiny fraction of the time you spend worrying about what others think, are people actually thinking about you at all.    …that the size of…

Drag Me To Hell pt 3

​Here are some problems I have with the doctrine of Hell:     -Jesus issued a solemn warning to anyone who harmed a child (Luke 17:2) and yet tens of thousands of children die daily who never heard the message of Christ to receive it. So these children must suffer eternal punishment in exquisite agony by…

Drag Me To Hell pt 2

​I realize how dangerous what I’m suggesting may seem to some of you. To challenge anything in scripture could easily be construed as spiritual suicide, but I refuse to allow fear to order my steps. A search for answers is pointless if one is afraid to face questions. I will see this through and pray…

Drag Me To Hell

So one day you’re walking along and you hear the screeching tires of an out of control vehicle. You hear screams beckoning you to “LOOK OUT!” but you cannot react quickly enough and with blinding speed, a car careens into you. Your body flies through the air, hits a tree and lands in a broken…

N*gger

​I was initially tempted to entitle this note “The ‘N’ Word” but to tip-toe around the term “nigger” would have served only to contradict my train of thought here……and so I’ll just call a spade a spade (if you can get past the ridiculously insensitive pun), and look Taboo in the face and say what…

We Don’t See God When The Sun Shines

​If you take away all of the rules, if you take away all of the rituals; if you abandon all of the judgment and all of the punishment; if you ignore all of the division and all of the exclusion; if you leave out all of the conjecture and all of the fantasy; if you…

The Good Life…..

​Everyone wants to be cared for.   Everyone wants order.   Everyone wants a reward.   Everyone wants a path.   Everyone wants a purpose. Everyone wants eternal life.   Religion/church generally provides a stage or at least the hope for these things.   Go to school.   Determine what you want to do.   Go to…

She’s Out Of My League

​ In this culture of uberconfidence, one is strongly criticized if they admit that anyone is “out of their league”. Arrogance is the new confident and so everyone must exercise the highest in self esteem and therefore, esteem themselves worthy of ANYONE regardless of that person’s station or their own. This is considered “healthy”. I am…
