Weird patch

He (Martin) was raised believing in a Christian God – NOT the same God, he’s quick to point out, as “those crazy American Fundamentalists” like George W. Bush – and at an early age he felt the collective power of singing in church. “Everybody singing together is the best feeling in the world” he says. […]

Katrina

Hey! I can’t believe I forgot to post something on the hurricane Katrina’s wrath upon Louisiana and Mississippi. Working for USDA and overseeing Louisiana as one of my States, I have some insights to the storm that other people possibly do not have. Our entire program was mobilized today and several of the people I […]

Fried

I am wanting to write something profound…but I am just mentally fried. Work has been banzai nuts lately. Much pressure to finish multiple documents that rival the any movie script or doctoral thesis. I have to take these plans and evaluate/read them in critical detail. On top of that, many of them are poorly written. […]

Murder Ball!

Went to go see Murder Ball yesterday with my mate Jeff. Whoah! Was I ever surprised. It rocked! I laughed in parts. I cried in parts. I cheered for the team like I was there. I swelled with pride at their accomplishments. I expected it to be good. But it exceeded this boy’s expectations. I […]

Freed

It’s occurred to me that my posts of late have been quite dark. And though times have indeed been difficult in recent days…I feel I must press beyond the circumstances to embrace the goodness that there is as well. For my life is good. And my Jesus is good. So very good to me. And […]

Keep me from stupidity

One of the best things that I know how to pray right now goes something like this: ++Dear God, please help me not to say anything stupid today. Dear Master, please help to not do anything stupid today++

Like the ocean's tide

I slammed into a spiritual brick wall yesterday. It was like the stress just built up over time. All the waiting. All the on again vs. off again with the house. All the seperation from my beloved wife and children. All the other stuff came heaping on me. I was so high strung I felt […]

Clinging fast

I am in a place of hopeless abandon upon the Lord. No, that is not really a bad place. Things are turning sour with the house deal in CO and will probably fall through. But I do thank God for things like my health, my great new job (and delivering me out of the old […]

crumpled

I went to my trusty celtic prayer book to do a morning office and was aghast! Two pages had become crumpled up pretty badly…most likely from being transported roughly here and there. I love my prayer book and use it often. And I guess this is just something that happens with use. There have been […]

Comments, we don't need no stinking comments!

Btw, just noticed that O’s new blog is up (please see “Onion Boy” in my blog roll). It looks GREAT as usual. He is so talented. But he has no comments any longer (that I could see). Bummer. More and more blogs are choosing to go that route. Another good example is Joshua and Kristen […]
