What I Am Not

The Proverbs of Solomon 1 A wise child brings joy to a father; a foolish child brings grief to a mother. 2 Tainted wealth has no lasting value, but right living can save your life. 3 The Lord will not let the godly go hungry, but he refuses to satisfy the craving of the wicked. 4 Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich. … Continue reading What I Am Not

What Is Love, Father?

Some people have a hard time showing, giving and receiving love. Myself and my late father being two of them. My childhood mainly consisted of many of the ugly things in life. Insecurities. Anxiety. Uncertainty. Fear. Many negatives. It was truly through those times of my youth that shaped me into the man I would end up being. It was through those experiences I became … Continue reading What Is Love, Father?

Realized

Time For Me

I noticed this morning, like many other mornings and days I have had throughout my life, that I was starting to wander. My thoughts were taking me to places that were not of peace. It has taken me many years to undo those patterns within my mind that have done nothing but destroy me not only mentally, but physically.

“I Pity Da Fool!”

This short clip of a longer video was recently floating around a social media site.     When I was growing up, “The A-Team” was a television show I would periodically watch. Mr. T played B. A. Baracus in the show. He was a pretty exotic character in my young eyes. Mohawk, twenty pounds of gold around his neck, fists of precious metals and feathers … Continue reading “I Pity Da Fool!”
