God is good

A popular christian song says: "God is good all the time He put a song of praise in this heart of mine God is good, yes He is, all the time Through the darkest night, His light will shine God is good, yes he is, God is good All the time, here we go!" In... Continue Reading →

just quit

Spare me the sermon if sin is all you can see in your  neighbor on the road. Spare me the words of salvation if you're too busy to relieve him of his load. Don't waste your breath speaking of Christ the savior if you think your politics is what will save us. Don't waste my... Continue Reading →

centered

Balance is challenging but essential. This is not just an abstract, new agey concept, but a very practical one. Without balance we topple, or at least we wobble. From fighters to yogis, we must find our centers. This, for me anyway, is often easier said than done.  Work vs. Family; Faith vs. Reason; Conservative vs.... Continue Reading →

some people. .

It's been brought to my attention that I've posted a lot of darkness lately.  People have expressed concern.  I'm fine. I post my thoughts and those are often dim, but vomiting it out is quite therapeutic. So, my apologies and thanks for reading. With that out of the way, here's a brighter, happier story: Years...

46- static

In Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Mr. Pirsig relates a story of some pilgrims climbing a holy mountain. Though I read it years ago, the story struck a chord with me. I paraphrase by memory: One particular climber was trudging up the mountain, his pack seemingly becoming heavier and heavier with each step.... Continue Reading →

evocative times

Evocative times we occupy at present. Lack of decorum evokes inflammation of emotion. Inflamed emotions erode sound reason. Reason is required in international and personal relations. Relations are crucial for a nation to be One. Word choice, or Language, is a window to the heart and mind. Undignified language exposes an undignified heart. Undignified hearts... Continue Reading →
