All the Noise Deep Inside – Where’s the Quiet?

By On August 18, 2020

It is hard for me to describe the discomfort I have inside. Unrest. Confusion. Noise. Racket. The waters of my life are murky and muddy and polluted with confusion.

When the timing is right, I’ll get him good.”  Have you ever been in strike-back mode – at least in your thinking? We can have some pretty wild thoughts of retaliation.

By On July 14, 2020

It’s Not a Hoax

By On July 13, 2020

It’s a COVID19 story. The very last words of a young man were both touching and tragic. “I think I made a mistake. I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not.” The rest of the story in a minute. But first, take a moment to reflect on other scenarios in life. Some think other critical issues are just a…
