Reality vs Thoughts

It’s easy to write from this side of the screen and have ideological thoughts about how life is lived and everything is peachy-keen and then get up from the keyboard and have life smack me right in the face… Now to those people who know me in real life… say, laugh, raise your eyebrows, look …

Mental Health and Faith

One of my all time favorite pastors is Chuck Swindoll… He preaches with humor and eloquence, love and truth while showing me who God really, that God He loves me and then Chuck guides me to know God better… In a recent email Chuck talks about endearing faith… And it’s totally CR (to me at …

For Such a Time as This, Ester & CR

The book of Ester reads more like a fairytale than any other books of the Bible… there is a beautiful Queen, King, hero and a villain… but twisted plot where God shows himself… It’s a good read… Queen Ester  But this story isn’t a fairytale… It’s real life… I’ll skip to a later part in …
