    Rejection, Redemption, and a Hymn

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    It’s Monday evening, around 9:30, and it has been a good evening at home tonight.  I spent much of the evening getting caught up on my Bible reading so that I stay on track for completing it in a year.  It was a quiet evening, and it was good to absorb the words and...

    Random Thursdayness

    It is now about 10:10 on Thursday evening after a normal but full day of activities.  It’s been a little while since I have written here, if only because I have failed to make the time.  It has been a busy week, as it has been a busy day, and I have had plenty...

    Today was a decent day, but unfortunately it ended with a second Lobo loss this week.  If you are a UNM Lobo hoops fan, this week has been pretty enlightening and disheartening, as we have seen where our men’s team stands related to the other top conference contenders.  Lobo basketball is still the biggest...

    7 Minutes: God Provides

    by  •  • Seven Minutes with God • 0 Comments

    In this season of drought and dearth in my life, today’s reading in Genesis (chapters 22-24) brought home a point that I reckon I need to hear: God asks us to obey Him, and God provides.  In His time, according to His will, He provides. In chapter 22, after giving Abraham and Sarah a...

    It’s 8:30 on Monday night, and I am home after enjoying dinner at my folks’ house with my sister’s family. My sister is out of town, and so Mom and Dad graciously had her husband and sons and exchange student along with myself over to indulge in her chicken and noodles specialty, which one...

    Breakfast with Brad

    When I got up on Saturday morning (sorta early), I went to see my friend Brad, and we talked. I hadn’t seen Brad for probably 2 months, and so I hadn’t talked to him since before Christmas and New Years and Kwanza and my mom’s birthday.  Brad looked great, and yet  the same to...

    Martin Luther King, Jr., on Courage

    by  •  • The Meaning of Manhood • 0 Comments

    On this holiday, some thoughts on courage by Martin Luther King, Jr. “Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles; Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances. Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it. Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency ask the question, is it politic? Vanity...

    Eric, A Success Story

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    This morning, I met my regular running buddy Kurt for our semi-weekly trot of torture around the Academy Loop.  It’s not always a trot of torture, but this morning, it was especially , ummm, “invigorating” because the thermometer read 27 degrees at the house when I left it at 5:50.  Bundled up, I met...

    Suze Orman, Unplugged

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 2 Comments

    I just witnessed a disillusioning exchange on Twitter this evening between financial expert Suze Orman and a number of bloggers who questioned her about the benefits of her new prepaid debit card program.  I’ve been a fan of Suze’s for some time, but her (or her PR rep’s) responses on Twitter to her inquirers...
