• About Bruce

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.

    “And as a few strokes on the nose will make a puppy head shy, so a few rebuffs will make a boy shy all over. But whereas a puppy will cringe away or roll on its back, groveling, a little boy may cover his shyness with nonchalance, with bravado, or with secrecy. And once...

    Happy Trails, Mate!

    Tonight I just wanted to celebrate my brother Tim. In three days, Tim will finally board a plane and leave Albuquerque to head halfway around the world- back to his country, back to his family, back to his new life in Melbourne. Over the last three and some years, I’ve been lucky enough to...

    NOTE: Today’s post is a little graphic. Morgue thoughts ahead… Hop off here if a little fluids talk gets to you. Today during our usual afternoon chat at work, my boss Tim was telling me about a book he’s been reading that he’s enjoyed. Written by Iceland author Arnuldar Indridason, “Jar City” is a...

    Yesterday morning, I was grateful to play hooky from church and just enjoy the quiet of a Sunday morning at home. After my chores, I climbed into a chair at the bar table in the back of my kitchen, opened my journal, and then opened Mark Batterson’s book, “In A Pit With A Lion...

    I don’t know. Maybe it’s just the way I am. Or I’ve always been this way. The great transition has started, I guess. Last weekend was the first weekend of our church meeting in its new facilities. Last weekend was the first weekend that I took a complete sabbatical day off. Last week, I...

    I mentioned last post that I had made a decision to step away from service at church for a bit. A bit of fatigue certainly contributed to the decision. I think feeling overwhelmed with a lot of noise from life is another. I ended up being so involved trying to be a good servant...

    Summer’s Return

    It’s odd. After a cool spring tempered by frequent rain, with the dawning of June, it’s like summer woke up and turned the heat lamp on. Over Memorial weekend, it felt to me that that shift arrived, and with it, my energy stalled. It’s been a weird transition of sorts. For the last three...

    A busy work day after a long Memorial Day weekend, I was grateful it was interrupted midday by a lunch appointment with Steve. I was lost in space driving over to the downtown Monroe’s on Lomas when I realized I had drove past it on Central, and then made a long detour north up...
