Work Harder

Work harderand pull those boot straps.You’ll have the dream, they sayyou’ll get fatter. But not today;today you’ll tighten your belts.You and your kids will waitfor a future time to play. Work yourself to deathand we will take a third.A little more here.A little more there. Work harder,get 2 or 3 jobs, partner,and we will takeContinue reading “Work Harder”

The Power of Whatever

Whatever! I probably say it a dozen times a day, and it makes things feel better. It has an odd power to shift the mind off the subject at hand and on to other things. It can allow us to cope with the crap this world brings to us daily. So… When your spouse orContinue reading “The Power of Whatever”

Barefoot Hiking

 Hiking has been a part of me since I can remember. Even today I need to get out into the wilds and walk. Whether it is alone, or with others, hiking quickens my soul. We live in a fast paced world of busy, busy, busy. No time to slow down and release all that stressContinue reading “Barefoot Hiking”

The Days of Old

I remember the days of old,when I crossed the fields alone.When I ran the forests;when I ran the trails,in those days of youth,in those days of sun. I remember the color of life.Everything seemed different.There was a brightness to the light;a shine, to everything. I remember hopping those fences.Going to those hidden places,to see whatContinue reading “The Days of Old”

The Monsters Come

Every morn, the monsters come.They come to attack my day.Every morn it’s the same,and every day, they strive away. The skeletons from closets scream,while vampires claw from crypts.They draw and draw until I am spent.Every day they come. The Monsters come. Ghosts of words unsaid,and desires of demons ripping.Wraiths of past things done;chasing my peaceContinue reading “The Monsters Come”

You Are Not Cast Out

Verse:  “All that the father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. —John 6:37      I failed in my life; and like so many others I had asked God to save me when I was young.  I went to church and I askedContinue reading “You Are Not Cast Out”

Hoarding in a Pandemic

The world as we know it has gone crazy. Everything has been touched. People are scared. They don’t know what to do, or what the future holds. The media speaks constantly of pandemic, and death. The numbers grow. We are told that we will be locked down 2 weeks, a month, a year!  We seeContinue reading “Hoarding in a Pandemic”

Does Your Life Suck?

First, stop cursing yourself. Say good things about yourself, and your life. Speak goodness into your life, and into your mind. I know things are hard. I’ve had hard times too. But, things will not change until you change them. The hard times are designed to get you to seek God, and start you moving.Continue reading “Does Your Life Suck?”

Walking on Water

When we have trouble in our lives we often pray to God. But, sometimes we do not see anything happening. We expect a bolt from the blue, or a miracle, but God mostly works through His creation.             So we relax and have faith in God, and His goodness, His love, and HisContinue reading “Walking on Water”

A Terrible Christian

I’m a terrible Christian. It’s a fact. Other Christians look at me and say “He said what?” or “He believes what?”  Or they might say, “That’s not very Christ-like.” And it’s true. I sin wickedly. But, they do also. They just commit the socially acceptable sins. They commit the churchy sins.             ThereContinue reading “A Terrible Christian”
