Polychrome

Created are the atrocities Inventions of the mind Beyond our control Within check at times Practices can manage Chemicals may heed Chemistry is a riddle Understanding is the need Past will perform Vivid stage play in memory Present screen play in monochrome Flushed by what used to be Instability is the writing on their paper See how it will go… Take two, then come back … Continue reading Polychrome

Contagion

The truly deadly pandemic is the constant mention of the fact. People falling prey to the media’s poise and tact. Worry and fear sell the story of instability and prose. Tune in for consternation. Your life, now decomposed.   Talk about a plague!? It’s right here, everyday. In the headlines, in the blogs, in the words that many say. Have a cup of trepidation. Drink … Continue reading Contagion

Morning Minding

I know that God is real. Anyone who doesn’t see it must be completely blind. Have you ever looked at the ground and observed the ants crafting their excavated hills — constantly doing their work in order to take care of the queen located somewhere within the ground beneath? Have you? Or, have you seen the microscopic bacteria magnified, observing just how alive they truly … Continue reading Morning Minding

The Gift Of The Unknown

As I wake this morning, I sit and wonder why I exist. Is there a bigger plan that I am somehow a very small part of? I believe so. I believe we all are. Somehow, we are an intricate part of a divine whole. I do mine, you do yours, and somehow, the end result has purpose. Just my thoughts. But, is this great working … Continue reading The Gift Of The Unknown

Growing Within The Power Within Yourself

Oh no! A Christian writing about “self”! He must be a fake?! We’re supposed to deny ourselves (Matt. 16:24)!! HA! Okay, so the title of my post this morning may look a little self-centered and deceiving. Allow me a few minutes to explain? First and foremost, this is my personal experience. I am not here to preach, argue or correct, and I won’t discuss apologetics. … Continue reading Growing Within The Power Within Yourself

So Much More

This journey of mine has really led me to some very interesting places within myself. In retrospect, I am seeing just how much wasted energy has been placed upon becoming my negative thoughts, opposed to simply observing them. This morning, I am thinking deeply about the difference, as well as the development of the strategies I have encountered throughout the journey that have kept / … Continue reading So Much More

A Good Friend

A friend I used to hang with had a beautiful way about him He was the best a person could ask for He went by the name of Sin He and I used to laugh together all hours of the day He’d bring me gifts of pleasure and show me splendid ways When night came, we’d celebrate under cover of darkened skies He was the … Continue reading A Good Friend

We Are Stardust

I think it is just fascinating that we are made up of the things the cosmos contain. It’s intriguing to observe the true contents of our flesh and bone structure. Almost 99% of our bodies, according to the Wikipedia website, are constructed of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium and phosphorous – the same elements found throughout the entire universe. Awesome! What’s even more intriguing, even … Continue reading We Are Stardust

The Thought Leads

As a man thinks, so is he. I heard this many years ago, far before learning of its context, and I am not, in any way, saying or using this to promote the power of attraction. I am not using this in the context as the Proverb does. It’s just a statement, relative to what I am writing this morning. There has been so many … Continue reading The Thought Leads

A Clean-Shaven Life

I have a confession to make: I’m lazy when it comes to shaving my face. I am not the guy who will rise and make shaving a part of the daily morning routine. It’s not uncommon for me to go a week or two with a short beard before finally growing tired of seeing it in the mirror. I have another confession: My Christian life … Continue reading A Clean-Shaven Life

Limited

At times, I sit and wonder what this life is truly all about. As I sit under the dark skies of the evening, observing the thousands of visible stars, I wonder just what we are. Knowing that what is visible is less than a small fraction of the infinite universe is so incredibly mysterious. We have such a limited understanding of all of this infinite … Continue reading Limited

The Gift Of Time

Sometimes I imagine myself in the middle of space, far from the planet. Of course, I wouldn’t survive as I would here, but I simply imagine observing the vastness of space. All of the never before seen wonder that it would behold. As I imagine this place I will never physically experience, I think about how I would have no sense of time. No clock, … Continue reading The Gift Of Time

With No Desire To Change

“How’s that working for ya?” Doctor Phillip McGraw, an American television personality, author, psychologist, and the host of the television show Dr. Phil, has used this quote within his program many times throughout its debut in 2002. Although I have only watched the program a few times, the phrase has stuck with me. This program usually has families that have faced some sort of turmoil … Continue reading With No Desire To Change
