  • My First Winter

    My First Winter

    I thought that this was a curse I would have to learn to live with for the rest of my life. So, I began to deal. I learned how to live life with the emptiness, the brokenness, the pain. I learned how to smile even when everything inside of me was weeping. There was no light at the end of this never-ending tunnel.

    So It Seems

    Nothing changes Yet nothing remains the same Each sway simple But its purpose unique The momentum, always timely

  • If Today Be My Last Day…

    If Today Be My Last Day…

    I would not think of the things that I own, nor of the things that I wished I could have. I would not think of the career I was able to attain, nor of the amount of money in my account. Instead, I would think of opportunities. Opportunities taken, opportunities missed. Opportunities to laugh, opportunities […]

  • I Would If I Could. I Will When I Can.

    Dear Lord, I go back and forth in my mind about the many reasons why none of this makes sense. The truth is that I know that I may be holding on to the ideas of what was, but that does not seem to be enough to deter me. Why? I am definitely not like […]

  • An Open Letter

    An Open Letter

    Dear You, I have known you for as long as I can remember. I once heard a quote that says “There’s a friend who sticks closer than a brother”, and yes, that’s us; though I am starting to doubt if I ever understood that proverb at all. I’ve been close with a lot of people, […]

  • Heart

    Heart

    I ask, ‘what is on Your heart’, You say, “you”. Me? “Do you trust Me”, You say. I am on Your heart, and You want to know if I trust You. Do I? Do I trust You? My default response to such a question wants to jump out of my mouth. My default response, like […]

  • Falling in Love

    Falling in Love

    I wake up thinking about Your love for me. I wake up trying to understand why You love me still. My mind often cannot comprehend, and words fail me when I try my hardest. At this crossroad of WHAT IS and HOW COULD THIS BE, I turn to song. With each chord strummed, I fall […]

  • When it clicks…

    When it clicks…

    As I went about my day and was winding down at work, I got restless with the noise of the world around me (this happens often – the world is a noisy place), and just wanted to retreat into a place where my soul could be edified with the words of Truth, with a focus […]

  • Trusting The Process

    “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10, KJV) She saw it boldly written. The other words seemed faint as she glanced through her bible. She had flipped through the pages continuously and that was the only verse that she caught sight of. She threw her bible to the floor and went down […]

  • In Loving Memory…

    You weren’t a pastor or a prophet, a doctor or a clinician, you weren’t in the spotlight and most didn’t even know how much you did BUT The number of lives you impacted, transformed, and uplifted are beyond measure. You were a man beyond compare. Charles Robert Scott, Coach, I do not even know where […]
