I Die Daily

By Chris Bunton There’s a verse in the Scriptures which says, “I die daily”. It is a small quote, within the context of a larger concept, but it’s a powerful tool for life improvement and spiritual growth. We often wake up in the middle of the night, or in the morning, full of anxiety. OurContinue reading “I Die Daily”

Church Nursery

By Chris Bunton You were in that church nursery, where they forced you to play. They made you share your toy, with that boy, who kept stealing it. They got mad, when you beat him, with that red fire truck. They said you were bad, and needed a long time out. Everyone made a bigContinue reading “Church Nursery”

Am I Better?

By Chris Bunton Over the years I have wondered. “Am I a better human being than I was before? or am I just sober?” Are we really better? or are we just trying to avoid trouble, keep from hurting our family, stay out of prison, or make more money? Are we better human beings? ThisContinue reading “Am I Better?”

Workout Thoughts

by Chris Bunton I’m not going to pretend to be a fitness instructor. When it comes to fitness I feel that if I can out run most people I will escape the zombies.

Inspire Others

By Chris Bunton I came from a place of rock bottom. Where the Lord has lifted me up, cleaned me off and is working in my life. That is a fact. But, I get discouraged. I want to help others, but it seems as though I don’t. It seems as though I’m a waste orContinue reading “Inspire Others”

The Two Kitties

We have several stray cats that live in the neighborhood. Most of them are wild. You cannot get near them or pet them. They sneak up and get food, or water, or to be nosy, but not much else. I’ve learned over the years in my spiritual walk that one of the places that humansContinue reading “The Two Kitties”

Am I an Addict?

It was night, when we lock down,and I whistled out theContinue reading “Cell Block Sounds”
