Hi "Big Daddy." So I hear you're the man. I've never really met you in person so I don't know. People say you love me and that you surely have my back, but most of the good that has happened in my life seems to have occurred by my effort or chance. Therefore I don't … Continue reading Fence Sitting Eve
I positioned the daruma in the most prominent spot on my makeshift dresser top shrine. I had purchased the three-inch papier-mâché roly-poly, the smallest among several available versions, for a paltry 300 yen from a temple near Yuki’s house. Apparently it was a Buddhist talisman capable of granting one wish. My Japanese sister had told … Continue reading My One-Eyed Genie
She navigates the world like any other. A human slicing and dicing her way through a crowd greeting those she knows... Smiling at some she doesn't; weaving through traffic. To a destination, onward. Her hand reaches for a glass on the table, a spice on the shelf. At night she watches the screen with her … Continue reading Far Be It For Me…
Before creation, On a pier made by a man, A man stands. Never to see Him walk, On water, But believing.
From this scene that appeared before me after a long wet spell, I realized. That...sometimes the earth does in fact mirror heaven. When an angel appears in an effortless kind act; And in the instant when a splendor that we cannot imagine is exposed as an almost touchable mirage. Bonsai
"Maybe that's the owner!" I said pointing in reverse. "Who?” My husband asked. "That lady with the walking stick! Grey-haired, all hunched over . . . by the side of the road. Didn’t you see her?" “No.” “Well anyway, she looked like an Eleanor.” I knew the property owner’s name from the disclosure papers sent … Continue reading The Showing
"Should I turn my ice maker off at night?" the frail voice at the other end of the phone inquired. "I don't think so. Why would you want to?" I asked. Without giving the lady time to answer my question I attempted to control the call. "Do you happen to have the model number for your … Continue reading When Jesus Calls Customer Service
Spiritual neutrality is non-committal and if you were the all -knowing creator of this universe how would this sit with you? If your children denied your existence and the direction you provided– attributed what you said to some general feel-good meme . . . how would you take it?
Humans were placed on the same boat (this earth) with diversity– physical diversity, circumstantial diversity and more. And although we may flounder and feel like orphans, we were provided a cox, the embodiment of God, to help us row together and win as one race (the human one). If we do not listen and trust Jesus Christ our rowing team will fall apart and our boat will turn in circles. Let’s not pussyfoot around the matter! There is an ultimate truth.
Please read the entire post linked below from “Beautybeyondbones.” She is a beautiful young Christian lady with a great heart. Her perspective reflects God’s love and is thought provoking. If you wonder what’s wrong with this world please read!
If you want to know what’s going on in the world, just look at graffiti.
I swear, take a walk through the Lower East Side of New York, and you’ll get a better and more accurate depiction of the issues than even Buzzfeed will report.
And let’s be honest here: I love a good street art display. Banksy has taken the possibilities of a spray can from a crude gang tag, to a high concept art instillation. While all the while remaining anonymous…and dodging the law.
#goals…except the whole breaking the law part lol
Because it reflected, what I personally believe, is the most detrimental way of thinking, that frankly is F-ing a lot of things up.

Our belief and prayers are our fortune. With them we have more than a fighting chance; without them we are overrun. There will always be invaders, and what amounts to our portion becomes a "wheel of misfortune" for those who try to hurt us. Our first night at our camp was straight out of hell. … Continue reading Avoiding a Spiritual Infestation
