This post is personal in nature, so if you do not like to read about struggles in a person’s life, then this post will not excite you. But for those of you that dare to venture into my mundane life… The title of this post is the question I have heard the most since I had … More How Are You Doing?
This post is going to be a bit more personal in nature, so if you are not into reading the public writing of introspection… It was just about a month ago I sat at the desk in my office and heard the words that caused me to go numb with dread, “we are letting you go.” … More Questions…
Growing up I learned a song, I think maybe in my elementary school years, that for some reason popped into my head a few months ago.

Over the last few days I have been thinking about sin… …and I have been sinning.

After what has seemed to be a lengthy absence I am back. I have had a bit of time for more soul-searching, and re-examination of motives and now I am ready to once again move forward with my thoughts. I know I am moody, introspective, and well just plan crazy! Over the past several months I have … More What’s Grace Got To Do With It?
