Who We Are

Many of us are very familiar with the story of David and Goliath. If you’ve never read it – please do [1 Samuel 17]. While many of us focus on the astounding feat of this fearless young boy, there are life-changing lessons to grab a hold of from this unassuming giant killer. The one whoseContinue reading “Who We Are”

I’d Rather

Woke up today to the sound of raindrops pitter-pattering outside. Glanced at the temperature, it was just about 64 degrees. The forecast says cloudy and I barely see the sun shining through. I am on Thanksgiving break and have no intention of doing much. Grateful to be alive and kicking at such a time likeContinue reading “I’d Rather”

Singleness On My Mind

One of the tough things about the holiday season for many is being single. Here comes the question again this year: Why are you still single? Many singles do struggle with depression and loneliness this time of year, whether they are alone or in a crowd. The truth is, this Thanksgiving many singles struggle withContinue reading “Singleness On My Mind”

Losing Sight

Today was the last day of class in my city before the Thanksgiving break. Because many of my students are fairly new immigrants, most are not familiar with some of the history behind many of our federal holidays. This week we took a brief look at early American history; this included a look at theContinue reading “Losing Sight”

Under a Rock

For a number of years, I have intentionally guarded my heart and mind from excess exposure to the various social media platforms. There is a lot of chatter out there. A lot of it is not worth my time or energy. For the most part, I have no idea who the popular You Tubers andContinue reading “Under a Rock”

In the Wait

As the year quickly draws to an end, many of us get into that solemn ‘reflecting’ mode. We ponder the what ifs, muse over the triumphs and defeat, the hits and misses. Occasionally we begin to mull over what we call ‘unanswered prayers’. Such were my thoughts this weekend as I drove to church. InContinue reading “In the Wait”

Piece of My Heart

I am sure like me, your heart has gone through some ‘surgeries’. You’ve gone through a thing or two – learned some valuable lessons along the way. Somewhere, we learned the art of guarding our hearts. As we got wiser we realized that putting a filter over our heart was important. Proverbs warns us toContinue reading “Piece of My Heart”

Music in the Storm

Last night as we were on watch for tropical storm Nicole, I laid on a bed in a room towards the back of my home talking on the phone to my sister in another state. That room had a window opened to a covered lanai, so I decided to open it to hear the soundContinue reading “Music in the Storm”

That Entanglement

This week I chose to be in a reflective mode. After asking myself some hard questions, I began to ponder the times my soul had been so entangled it might have impaired my perception of people and their place in my life. In an earlier post ‘That Boy’, I shared a season in my lifeContinue reading “That Entanglement”
