Survival is not the same as living. I don’t know many people are living. However, there are a few. Thinning the chaff out of our lives is something that must be done – no matter how painful – if we are to grow and effectively love others around us in a better way. When love […]

“Lord, how great is our dilemma! In Thy Presence silence best becomes us, but love inflames our hearts and constrains us to speak. Were we to hold our peace the stones would cry out; yet if we speak, what shall we say? Teach us to know that we cannot know, for the things of God […]

Nobody wants to live forever. Even if they could, there would be the realization that, after some period of time, they’d discover they are infinitely alone. Fortunately, we have the blessing of being alone for a finite period of time. If you really think about it, this rings true of our lives; step by step, […]

In the infinite universe, we have the opportunity to experience a great many things, sights, touches, and sounds. With no preexisting limits to what it is that we can, or cannot, accomplish, we’re given the perception that the sky is truly limitless. The sky may be limitless, but man has never succeeded in jumping over […]

However, I have begun to wonder if […]

We often speak of resurrection with such callousness that we forget the significance of its occurrence 2,000 years ago. We also isolate this act to the past, thus preventing the beauty of it to be seen in our daily lives. Every single day, resurrection occurs. Whether it is the new leaves on a tree or […]

Over time, I’m coming to discover that I’ve become less concerned about what it is that others think over the fact that I disagree with them. A more gentle version of this statement would go something along the lines of: “As I’ve grown older, I’ve realized that people are unique individuals, with the uniqueness of […]

Does the suit wear the man, or does the man wear the suit? I’ve always been a big fan of this statement, as it’s reflective of many elements of our society that cannot be duplicated simply by appearance. Posture does not provide the strong look of a confident individual. A sharply-tied knot does not create […]
