Who to Blame?

Who to Blame? We are always at a crossroad in our life.  Which road we choose, and why, determines our future. At what point do we stop blaming the past on the failures of today? Even the problems …

Greed in Grieving

Death knocks on all of our doors.  Some are made to answer sooner than others.  As the ones left behind we grieve for them, or do we?  We do grieve but it is because of our greed.  We want them, we need them, we miss them, so we grieve.  We are happy that they no longer are in pain or suffering.  We take solace in the fact that they knew God and are now singing in that great beyond.  They are with family and with friends, and we are happy.  Yet because of our greed, we still cry…………Continue Reading

A Clearer View

What an awesome experience this last weekend was for not only our youth but for the adults as well. We went to a place in the world that most will never go, the slums of Ecuador. We did not actually travel to Ecuador rather we traveled to Lineville, Alabama to the S.I.F.A.T. (Servants in Faith and Technology) grounds for a 48 hour simulation of life in the slums of Ecuador. …… Continue Reading

 

Racism – A Learned Skill

Racism – A Learned Skill

There is no doubt in my mind that racism still exists. However one needs to be careful calling someone else a racist. Ask yourself whether it is racism or ignorance? There is a difference. When someone says those blasted Muslims, or all those black people, those whites, those anything of the sort, then they are racist. Regardless of color, race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other “qualifying” status that …….

A Father

God bless the man who sacrifices for his family

God bless the man who helps without wanting

God bless the man who goes without

God bless the man who smiles with a touch

God bless the man who instills fear

A Tolerant Nation

To understand how tolerant our nation is one would have had to visit any other country. I have stepped foot on and had to live on every continent. I have been to countries where the slightest mis-movement of the hand can land you in jail. I have been to places where being gay was a capital offense. I have seen firsthand what freedom is by seeing what it is not. We are a tolerant nation.

I Owe You What?

So I was called racists today for not apologizing for whites owning slaves hundreds of years ago.  In fact when I asked the person who said that if their ancestors were slaves he said no but other black people were so therefore it affected him.  Really?

I Miss You

I Miss You

How plans change in the blink of an eye. Forever doesn’t quite mean as much when your forever is taken from you. Memories haunt your dreams and places spark memories. There is nowhere to hide from the pain. The hurt eventually fades but the heartache will linger forever. Life moves on and loves come again but your forever was changed,

and that can never be taken back.

Unworthy

There is always a worry lingering that one day I will wake up from this dream. If I do will she still be there? Will she still care? How can someone so beautiful love someone so broken? How can she not see what I see? When she realizes that the souls of her feet hold more beauty than my entire being, will she still love me?

Sometimes the dreams are so real it’s scary.

When you touch me I cry

Because I am unworthy of such love

Because I am undeserving of such peace

Branded

This is for the guys who slip off their ring as they walk into the bar. Karma, what can I say? A women’s scorn will one day come back to bite you when and where you least expect it! So she said as the package was opened with the photos of you sleeping and,

your ring falls out!

Well I feel like such a fool, thinking the whole time you’re so cool

While you were using me, you had a family

And I admit you’ve played me well, and it worked until I felt

You had a wedding band, carved in your cheating hand

Branded,

Don’t pull me into your life; I’m not competing with your wife
