Shatters of Glass

You’ve probably heard of the commandment that says “you shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain”. I did early on. Cussing was a no no. Nevertheless, euphemisms abounded. Which are the same thing under a different term, I feel. So let me get this straight — you can say dang…

Focus

Clear sight. It used to evade me very often. Especially when I was a child. I’m thankful that I have good eyes, just wonky focus sometimes. I can see near and far. Without correction though, one eye is stronger than the other, and I often see two heads instead of one. *Does not come from…

Loving Kindness

I have been realizing how far a little consideration goes, and how powerful a good-willed attitude is. I have seen it firsthand among people that are scared and stressed out. It funny because I’m usually the quiet guy. I’m more prone to use gestures and whatnot to “speak”. Maybe it is the Italian in me….

What Holy Matters

I found myself praying for power recently. Not for grandiose reasons. Rather I just like to feel able and ready. I was dozing asleep, and God put some twilight thoughts in my mind. That’s how I believe it to be. The thoughts were to the narrative: “Why are you asking me for power? You have…

Icarus

There is a tale of a man. We know his story from the Greeks who gave life to him and death. Yet, he relates to us even now. Different twists of it are told, and yet I like the original. It is the myth of Icarus. Icarus was a young lad who received wings made…

The Job of Job

Have you ever felt like everything was going wrong in your life? Even if it was for a just a moment? I think we all have at times; I certainly have felt that way. There are many people in the Bible that have gone through hard times, and honestly – they commonly had it worse…

Hope

“Everything that is up must come down. ”  I have heard that said before, and to be frank I considered it a rule — a rule for expected disappointments   Which is why for a long time I tried to live in such a way that I didn’t have to count on anyone.   Yet… that was terrible…

To the Gentlemen

“A man is a man because he can cry” The Craftsman from Little House on the Prairie This is to the bros, and gents out their that deal with a very common inner conflict…. Their own hearts. “You aren’t a tough guy if you express hurt.” You are called a number of names for actually…

An Answer of Peace

I have never sat before a human king. I think few have, at least now and days. Kings of old often were adorned with a splendor that few can possess or imagine, and yet… though they were worshiped as gods — mortal they were. How a king was approached in the past was a serious…
