Eternity Has a Shadow

During the last few months of 2015 I read at least four Ashley Madison related articles. Ever since the great hack that exposed millions of people subscribed to this match making site for married people (yes, I said married people), stories have popped up all over. Forbes Magazine, The New York Post and Business Insider…

Let It Go: God Will Give It Back

Exactly two thirds of what I had left. If I gave what the Spirit instructed me to give, it would be two thirds of the money left in my wallet. I wondered if it was worth it, if I could afford it, if I was being foolish, fiscally irresponsible even! I tried to do some…

So You Want to be Rich?

From Pink Floyd’s 1973 hit “Money” to the more recent (and more explicit) “I Get Money” by 50 Cent; from the 1984 television debut of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” to today’s edgy stock trading show “Mad Money”, there is and always will be a conversation going on about how to have more, get…

A moment of silence in the Church, please!

Noise has changed in the 21st century thanks to technology. It’s subtle and constant and even ‘quiet’ in most instances. Noise is in the atmosphere; it’s the energy you can sense even when you can’t see or hear anything. Everywhere there is a running commentary on everything under the sun. Whether it’s the status feed…

I imagined that he reflected on his time in the wilderness, the years eating locust and wild honey, the taunts and the jeers, the ridicule and the condemnation. I’m pretty sure he reflected on the day when he beheld the Messiah, the great…

When You Know Better

The late Dr. Maya Angelou has often been quoted as saying that when you know better you do better. Well, I didn’t get that memo until late in life, and I still forget to read it sometimes. Sure, I know better, but then I do something completely contrary! I understand the logic of the quote,…

The Godly Feminist

Womanhood is like a complex and inviting fragrance on my skin, fruity and dense, powerful yet fresh. I love it! I love the way femininity brings warmth and calm to virtually every situation and I especially love how I, as a woman, compliment a man. The male/female duo is an arresting combination, when they meld…

City on a Hill

In 2010, I started secretly blogging. Like some kind of demented Santa Claus, leaving beautiful gifts that no one could possibly find, I’d post to my rarely mentioned, poorly visible website. With no one to see me, judge me or criticize me I felt ‘safe’. I holed-up in this small and lonely place, away from…
