Romance Isn’t Dead. . .

I am an introspective kind of person, so in the past month, as I’ve struggled to ‘take every thought captive’ (2 Cor. 10:5) I have also tried to figure out why I am having a thought problem at all. It feels as though it cropped up randomly, during a time when I had been feeling... Continue Reading →

A Tale of Two Lives

It’s strange, but I often feel like I’ve lived two different lives. There is a clear dividing line between the two, at my twenty-fourth birthday, which coincided closely with being discharged from the Coast Guard. My family is a kind of bridge between the two different lives. When I visit my parents at my childhood... Continue Reading →

It’s Probably Just Astroturf!

For a couple of weeks, I was more emotional than usual. I have been struggling with a restlessness and discontentment that is pulling me in the wrong direction.

What Am I Forgetting?

I had a week off from work, and I spent some time with my family. I returned home feeling at loose ends. I turned on my desktop computer and it began making a loud noise. Almost instantly, anxiety welled in my gut. I complained to God: Lord, I know that I need to plan on getting... Continue Reading →

Where There’s A Will

I heard someone say recently, that when he is asked for advice about life, he tells the person to do the thing that they don’t want to do. His premise is that the thing we don’t want to do is usually the right thing to do. It’s an astute observation of our sinful race. The right... Continue Reading →
