The Washingtons – a christian political allegory

Imagine a happy, classic American family: two parents, Reagan and Roosevelt(Rosy for short) Washington, two kids, Liberty and Unity, and a dog and maybe a cat. Let's go ahead and put a goldfish and a guppy in a tank on the bar between the kitchen and dining room. One kid is in dance and the... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.13)

Christmas Eve arrived as suddenly as did the Christmas season.  The Washingtons had spent substantial amounts of money in an effort to buy good cheer for themselves and for Liberty, and the Harhashes, though they spent very little on decorations or gifts, were feeling the cheer of their fellowship with God and Douglass' family and...

The Washingtons (ep.8)

After a long therapeutic ride, Reagan returned home to find that everyone had gone to bed. The kids were asleep and Rosy may as well have been. He climbed into his side of the bed and drifted off into a fitful, restless sleep. The next afternoon Rosy texted him and invited him to dinner. She... 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 →

The Washingtons (ep.4)

One August day when she was around 5 years old, her mom dropped her off in the morning at the Playworld to be picked up... Continue Reading →

I'm ok with who I am. It has taken quite some time to get here, but I'm good with me. And as for the people who aren't, well, I don't really care. On the other hand, may they have ethics complaints filed against them. But not by me, because it's not worth my time. I've... Continue Reading →

tongues & tribes (africa4)

The Tuesday morning sunbeams illuminated a dusty street pressed by foot traffic mostly, with inhabitants going to and fro to gather the morning news and breakfast. I had eggs scrambled with jalapenos and tomatoes, with an orange drink, before I was picked up in a blue bajaj to roll through the bumpy streets to attend... 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 →
