"Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live. It is asking others to live as one wishes to live." ~ Oscar Wilde Many people think that I am weird or just plain selfish but I have to say that I loathe the constant compromise required to peacefully but resentfully cohabit with another human being. Yes indeed, living alone - well, with my dog - is a luxury that I am grateful for every day of my life. In my dream relationship, we live in separate homes next door to one another or at a minimum, in a large house with separate wings. My wing has a beautiful bedroom, a perfect bathroom... Read More

God is not human, that he should lie,

not a human being, that he should change his mind.

Does he speak and then not act?

Does he promise and not fulfill?

-- Numbers 23:19

Flee.

Run.

Hide.

Seek.

Turn.

Emerge.

Rinse and repeat?

For too many people, life has become an extended game of playground freeze tag. There they stand, scattered around like trees in winter, fixed and flash-frozen either as they have been proclaimed to be by someone more righteous, or as they in their brokenness project themselves to be,... Read More

Our helper, understanding

I was doing my Bible study one day and came across several things I wanted to share about the different kinds of Christians. As I was studying I also came across the parable of the sower. We can compare which kind of Christian belongs to each seed or seeds. As we go by day by day living our lives as Christians we know that the Holy Spirit came to lead us into truth John 16:13. I always pray for the filling of the Holy Spirit. There are so many teachings out there so we have to really know and understand what God says in his word. It's... Read More

Shame, a burning feeling in my cheeks, in my mind, in my skin. I feel everyone knows my misdeed. I can't believe I ever stooped so low; that I would not listen to the voice inside that would have kept me safe, (or so I thought); that I would let myself betray me; that I would put myself in that place. It wasn’t always me. I didn’t ask for that situation or do anything wrong. But still the shame persists. A constant nagging burning feeling that makes me feel less than, less than anything. It burns through all my identities, creating a self hating monster inside of me. I can't stop the... Read More

We all seek happiness: that wonderful, peaceful feeling when we believe our personal universal stars are meticulously aligned, giving us that oozing and satisfying feeling. It can be found everywhere, and can hit you when least expected, sending you soaring to new heights along your life’s super highway. Many of us think we know what will make us truly happy: that winning lottery ticket, a romantic relationship filled with never-ending butterflies, or perhaps becoming eye candy for paparazzi-infused photographers hanging on your every thought or gesture. Once again, we all think we know what... Read More

There are reasons at times my interactions with people seem strained. I say the wrong things. I limp through my social circles, everyone making way for my awkward presence. I bring up subjects deep and poignant. I provoke thoughts, thoughts you are not accustomed to. I speak in a way you find odd. My accent tainted, not pure, not from any one place. The same with my mannerisms. I don't know how to hold my hands in crowd. I wonder if the way I'm standing is threatening. If a purse is left close to me, I walk away, believing you'll accuse me if something is missing. Trying to drive with a thousand... Read More

You see beauty everywhere, your supposed to be happy. Your not.

You see people laughing, your supposed to be a part. Your not.

You see tears falling, your supposed to feel. Your not.

You see prayers offered, your suppose to do that. Your not.

You see life passing, your supposed to do something. Your not.

And worst of all, you just don't care. I mean you really, really, don't care. About anything.

Its a death you feel in every little crack of your soul.

Like dust collecting, its death in the small areas of your life.

But wait you walking... Read More
