Always searching for Orion

I was driving to work tonight and looked a bit like a drunk driver.  The sky was wonderfully clear and dark which made the stars quite visible.  I looked at the sky on the driver's side of my car and lo-and-behold, Orion was following me to work.  Orion is my favorite constellation.  Not because he's … Continue reading Always searching for Orion

People vs. Love

I was talking with a friend recently.  For the sake of this post I shall name this friend Erin.  Erin is an great friend to many around her.  She is a devoted spouse and parent.  She is a positive influence.  But Erin is wearing a mask.  But, honestly, aren't we all wearing some form of … Continue reading People vs. Love

Looking back

We're a few days into 2016.  Christmas decorations have come down.  Resolutions have been made . . . and broken.  The grownups have gone back to work and the kids have gone back to school.  We're settling into the peaceful post-holiday time where we don't have to worry about anything (until Valentine's Day).

When will healing come?

2 weeks as of today.  That's how long this mess has been unfolding everyday at work.  With each day that passes more misdeeds come to light.  Lies told.  Money stolen.  People hurt.  And each day, and each revelation, seems to continue to be worse than the one before.  How much lower can it get?  Was … Continue reading When will healing come?

A letter that will never get read

This is the fourth time I've tried to start this post.  Will this one meet with the delete button also? I need to sit down and talk with someone that I care about very much.  But due to circumstances involved with the situation I may never be given that opportunity.  When my dad was going … Continue reading A letter that will never get read

I can’t delete me

Recently there was a huge misunderstanding within my church.  A few people said somethings (myself included) about the leadership of the church.  I sided with some people without getting the entire story.  I wrote a post about the event while still in the heat of the moment, but the very next day was convicted by … Continue reading I can’t delete me

My testimony

I'll be honest and tell you that this post is proving difficult to write.  My brain and fingers have both told me that I need to write something today, but this is the third attempt.  The previous two attempts met their fate with the delete button. Like many people I have the Time Hop app … Continue reading My testimony
