I’m a Failure

I’m a failure. I have been one my whole life. Everything I have ever put my hand to has failed. Maybe you are the same. Yes, I have cursed myself. Yes, I have made bad choices and lived a wrong life style. No I haven’t chased my dreams. No I haven’t made goals, and maybeContinue reading “I’m a Failure”

Release

I was in the arctic.Those frozen forests of Alaska.North of Fairbanks,in the wild Yukon. It was night,and the moon shown,on the white, bright snow.Everything had a light, blue glow. It was cold,minus 60 degrees,and I prayed to God,for a sign to go. I needed a change.A new life, away.And a way to go. A wayContinue reading “Release”

The Diet of Primitive Peoples

The Diet of Primitive Peoples  I saw a meme on Facebook and it got me thinking. Here’s what the meme said: “Vegetarian is an Indian word for ‘Bad Hunter’” It’s funny, and it was meant to be a joke on vegans or vegetarians, but it also shows what some people believe about our ancestors. IContinue reading “The Diet of Primitive Peoples”

Those Mines

Those mines ruled my world.The coal mines of Southern Illinois. My family came from,the Tennessee mountains.to dig in those mines. They fought the Civil war and died.They farmed and mined.They sang, fought and prayed. Working men breathing that dust,killing themselves every day,and drinking it away at night. Union men from Lewis day,beating scabs to death.Continue reading “Those Mines”

Scary Things

That scary thing won’t happen.Reject it; stand against it.Get in its face, like a boss.Break its nose; then laugh at its blood. Has the worst thing come to pass?How many times in your life?That anxiety demon;kills us a thousand times, before death. I will pray about it now.I will believe I am safe.I will trustContinue reading “Scary Things”

Abundant Life

“I am the door; by me if any man, enter in he shall be saved, and shall go in and out and find pasture.  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” —JohnContinue reading “Abundant Life”

Healthy Society

We hear calls for healthcare. But, why don’t we demand a healthy society? We demand that healthcare be provided, but we do not demand that we be protected from the things causing disease.             According to the CDC among the top leading causes of death and disease in the U.S. are Heart Disease,Continue reading “Healthy Society”

Prison Church

I was in an isolation cell;when I realized God put me there.He sat me down to speak.He shook me awake. I began to live again.Everything was ok, again.I felt Him there, again.I knew who I was, again. I went to those prison churches.Those gatherings of criminals, like me.Those broken, hurting men like me.Those sons, husbands,Continue reading “Prison Church”

Mother’s Day Poem

Mother’s Day Poem The beauty and love of God is in all things. God said, “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children…” After the Fall of mankind in the Garden, God said this to Eve;the mother of all humanity.

Losing Weight Organically

First, right out of the gate I want you to know that I am not a doctor. I am not a chemist or a researcher. But, I do notice things, and I have an irritating habit of wanting to tell people the things that I notice. I want to tell you what I have experienced,Continue reading “Losing Weight Organically”
