Way back in the Stone Age, January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a landmark decision in Roe v. Wade. We all know the case so there's no point in beating that poor old dead horse. It's been flogged for forty years now and of course, the whipping only becomes more intense the closer we get to an election.

The latest attempt comes from Virgina's "personhood" bill, introduced by U.S. Senate candidate Bob Marshall which grants the unborn fetus the same rights and privileges as any other person. The implications of this are enormous and there are twelve other states considering similar... Read More

Sometimes I feel like I see the number 1 everywhere. Has that ever happened to you?

I have a special friend - a prayer warrior - who loves those number 1's like nobody's business. They are up all over his Facebook page. He posts shots of his i-Phone screen at 1:11 and 11:11. Some days he has a penchant for 3's, but most of the time, it's all about the 1.

Love him.

Here's an 11:1 for you: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1.

We look for God's fingerprints on things. We know He's there because we can... Read More

"All things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to His purpose." - Romans 8:28

Definition of word up: "I comprehend what you are saying and verify that what you are saying is true, my good brother." - Urban Dictionary

Romans 8:28. Word up, for my life. Thank God. Glory to God.

I have recently been going over my lifetime balance sheet again and again, classifying major events as blessings or hardships. Somehow, after everything hits the list, no matter how many things I put on the hardship side, the blessing side keeps winning.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of deadlines, day jobs, family commitments, social networking, and the mere act of living from day to day, some of us try to carve out oases of quiet to rest the mind and the spirit in order to write. These are precious moments, diminishing as we age, for our fingers on the keyboard eventually slow down and our tiring minds needs longer periods of pause before they kick into – what I call – the inspiration zone.

What is this zone? It’s a storehouse of memories and impressions created from any and all of the following occurrences: a moment of stress or loss,... Read More

It’s okay to question why.

It’s okay to even cry.

Don’t ever hesitate to try.

God will answer; He won’t lie.

There’s no answer He won’t know.

There’s no place He will not go.

There’s no path He will not show.

God will answer; He loves you so.

No question lies within your mind.

That God cannot in love unwind.

That’s how we’ve all been so designed.

To seek from Him what we can’t find.

In His answers lies our peace.

In His words, we find release.

Our search can end, our troubles cease.

It all... Read More

Judging from the lint sticking to my sweater, I would say there is a law of attraction at work in my life. Judging from my bank account, I would say there may be further proof.

The Law of Attraction may sound dopey to a physicist, but then again string theory is pretty counter-intuitive to me. All I know is that happy people seem to have happy things happen to them, and negative people are usually up to their necks in doo. Why?

I believe expectation subtly influences behavior. If you expect to be rejected, your body language will make it happen. If you expect to be well received,... Read More

There is something about the pure clean sparkle across a blanket of snow that brightens my heart. And something about the cold icy light that reflects from every inch of a shimmery expanse seems to tell me there is so much more I've yet to see and discover. I've seen the spirit of perseverance in snow caped roses. They held out all through the fall, and even in their waning glory their gardener let them remain. So pink and tightly cupped, frozen in pre bloom, now claimed by winters decor as they stand tall wearing their shawl of snow. Have you ever been outside on a cold snow covered... Read More
