prayer

The idea of the existence of a god fascinates me. A being that is so big, it spoke the big bang into happening. So infinite that it holds the "infinite" universe like I might hold a towel. So full of omniscience that man's science looks like a toddler discovering his toes. Perhaps even more astounding... Continue Reading →

Scribendo Cogito

I don't always learn by teaching. Sometimes, I learn by conjuring up some humility, reminding myself that I'm not an expert in - well - anything, and finding someone who IS, and then submitting to their instruction. On this point, for the past several years I have been studying mediation and more specifically, conciliation, methods.... Continue Reading →

dignity etc

I asked the question recently on a popular social media platform: What is Dignity, and is it endangered? Oddly enough, I think it is rare, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is. Maybe that is why I call it rare. You would think that I would have to recognize what something... Continue Reading →

Emmanuel Pantokrator

Christmas has come and gone. But even in the absence of Christmas: Emmanuel. God is with us. He doesn't leave when the decorations come down, or the tree becomes a fish habitat, or even when the presents lose their newness. He remains, as He always has been and always will be. And its not just... Continue Reading →

He reached and took the round new planet down, and... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.6)

A home is a wonderful thing. A family is even better. Armistice, when needed, is from God Himself. Put the three¬† together and you have a miracle that many people never experience and that many who experience it take for granted. The Washingtons had hit a sweet spot in life.¬† Reagan was rising early each... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.5)

One of the, if not the, greatest days of any of the Washingtons' lives was the day the adoption was finalized. It was two days after Easter. The air was still cool in the mornings but the warmth of the sun was beginning to show up in the afternoons. The trees and the grasses were... Continue Reading →

time travel (africa1)

I went to work Friday morning with Africa on my mind. Actually, I went to bed the night before the same way. Truly it has been in the forefront of my thoughts since the call. I left Conway for the airport around 4 p.m. Friday. After familial salutations and my oldest son helping me with... Continue Reading →

let justice roll

So much. Misconduct. Bad behavior. Accusations. Ruined lives. Ruined careers. Battered victims. Lying "victims." Lying perpetrators. Battered "perpetrators." Allegations have been flying lately. I see myriads of people making a lot of assumptions that would strengthen their own political views if true, but I don't see that many people with a substantial set of facts... Continue Reading →
