“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” Oscar Wilde It’s been quite some time since I’ve been able to project my thoughts into a blog. However, I am hoping to get a few things off […]

Nobody will create an internal personal code of ethics or morals that they are incapable of reaching or attaining. To the writer of the law, all is acceptable and/or permissible so long as it is justifiable. It is only within an external set of moral boundaries that we are held to standards higher than what […]

“If you look at cosmology, which is the study of the origin of the universe, whatever begins to exist, has a cause. Scientists now believe, the universe must’ve had a cause. The implication of that cause must be very powerful, very intelligent, immaterial, and beyond time.” Sitting here, I am thinking of all the things […]

“Jesus came to comfort the afflicted, but He also came to afflict the comfortable” These are interesting times for me, as I continue my search for self-identity and a plan of action for the next few months. I suppose even Superman had his kryptonite. Today was a rough day for me as I realized just […]

Many people point to the mythical Phoenix as a source of inspiration; rising from its very own ashes. I sort of wonder what went on in its mind as it decided it would be worth rising again. We really aren’t much different than the Phoenix. We often have situations that cause us to crash and […]

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” Testing. This is not a test. This is reality. I am not writing to you in a fictional state of being. Rather, I am alive and well, in a very real world, with very real thoughts […]

“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.” C.S. Lewis One of the largest blessings in my life remains the abundance of opportunities that continue to present themselves to me at all times in rapid-fire succession. In a short period of time, more options arise […]

“There is a strong drift toward the hard theological left. some emergent types want to recast Jesus as a limp-wrist hippie in a dress with a lot of product in His hair, who drank decaf and made pithy zen statements about life while shopping for the perfect pair of shoes. In Revelations, Jesus is a […]
