A COVID Thanksgiving

I grew up on a dead-end dirt road, running barefoot, with pig-tails, and a cap-gun strapped to each hip.  My imaginary world was wonderful, and I lived in it as much as possible, but by the end of the day it would dissipate and the reality of poverty and fear would take over.  My mom,…

I’ll Vote for Mickey Mouse

Friends, an innocent man does not hide.  An innocent man does not shun the opportunity to present his case to the powers that be.  An innocent man does not ignore subpoenas ordered by America’s Justice system.  An innocent man does not take his case to the Supreme Court in order to keep his tax returns private.  My question is…

Make America Great Again…?

She always knew it would end this way.   She had lived her life…so, what of it…?!  They had been so gentle helping her cross the road.  Their faces kind and their touch kinder.  Lies!    They cared nothing for her and she knew it.  They wanted her gone.  Gone and forgotten.  Inside the boat, she…

Nuggets of Wisdom

I thought it would be interesting to start a series from Solomon’s book of Proverbs.  What is a proverb?  Well according to the NLT Bible,  “A proverb is a short, concise sentence that conveys moral truth.”   To paraphrase, a proverb is a nugget of wisdom, and when used makes our life better.  Knowledge is good,…

Trump-Care, Is It Better?

Hurray for the GOP!  They finally passed a health care bill for the American People!  Mind you, they don’t want it for themselves, or for their families, but they deem it perfect for us.  They were so proud of themselves for reaching this monumental decision, they ordered crates of beer to celebrate.  Oh, what fun. But,…

From Snowflakes to Blanket

I’m a little snowflake, I drift about.   Looking for injustice, hear me shout.   You label me as liberal, and think me lame.   But I embrace your symbol, and use it for my name!   Snowflakes are small, and they seem quite frail.   But when we come together, we are a force…

The God Who Sees Me…

“You are the God who sees me…” __ Hagar   I’ve always felt a kinship with Hagar.  Hagar was the maidservant of Sarah, Abraham’s wife. This is her story: Sarah, the wife of Abraham, was barren.  None-the-less, God had promised  that through their children would come the nation of Israel.  Abraham and Sarah had tried…

Confident and Full of Hope

Good day, dear friends!  Here we are at close of another year.  We’ve run, walked, and sometimes crawled these past 365 days.  Now we find ourselves tying the bow, on the box we call 2016, but before we put the box upon the shelf,  may we take a moment to ask the question:  What has…

The Shoe’s the Same

Hello friends, I hope this day finds you well. I have to be honest, I’m feeling disappointed. Yes, I knew it was a long shot, but I still held out hope. Yesterday, the Electoral College made it official.  Donald J Trump will become the 45th president of these United States on January 20, 2017. I have to…

Besp0ken Plans

What You Should Know about Rex Tillerson, America’s Next Secretary of State… President elect, Donald J Trump, has finally made up his mind as to who will be the next Secretary of Sate.  After dangling, as carrots before the American people, such names as, Petraeus, Guiliani, and Romney, Trump decided against all three, and instead…
