Weary

My mind is tired. After almost 20 years of schooling, I’m ready to be done.  I joke with the kiddos at church often, saying that I’m in 20th grade, or something along those lines. This is usually followed by: “And

“Be Cool.”

I just want to be loved, be liked, be accepted, “be cool.” I swear, this has been a pursuit for my entire life. “Being Cool– The NeverEnding Quest.” More like “Being Cool– The NeverSatisfying Quest.” ~:~ Heck, let’s be honest–

Memories & Objects

Over the years, we’ve had computers, external hard drives, flash drives, thumb drives, CDs, DVDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, Mini-CDs, memory cards, SD cards, MicroSD cards, 3.5 Floppy Disks, Floppy Disks, and more… and now, of course, we have “The Cloud”– or

icur: The What

Teresa, a saint with her love and her doubts, said it best: “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”  Perhaps you and I can’t create a culture of good news, good works, and goodness found in Christ (though isn’t

Motivational Babies #5

I created these a few years, combining the “aww” of babies and the “awesome” of motivational quotes. Some are funny, some are serious, and some are just awe inspiring. And some are just stupid. More at http://motivationalbabies.blogspot.com.  

I am like a Tree

A song written ages ago… “I will pour out my spirit on your children     and my blessing on your descendants. They will thrive like well-watered grass,     like willows by streams of running water.” Isaiah 44 ~:~  I am like a

The Box

“Think Outside the Box.” This axiom is an accusation for all who are lost in apathy and acedia. When all I see is wall, wall, ceiling, floor, wall and wall… How can I escape? How can I get out? While
