• 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.

    Politics Aside

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    I’m pretty naive when it comes to politics, and I’d have to say, I’ve chosen that ignorance much of the way, and I don’t mind it. Politics, in a classical sense, is the art of distributing power, and perhaps in a purer day, politicians were considered icons in some societies because they truly wrangled...

    Plain Ol’ Friday

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    I got up early this morning to try and write another blip of a short story, and naturally, half way through, I disliked it. It was one similar to others I’ve started: two guys on a bomber air crew get up early, meet after breakfast for preflight briefing, are soon on their aircraft (at...

    Kids and Vets

    Last month, I told myself I needed to find somewhere to plug in and volunteer some time, so of course, most of this month has been spent not doing that, but just thinking about it. I finally actually explored an option last night and at a work colleague’s invite attended a meeting of the...

    The Son Who Takes

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    Throughout my life I have been fairly close to the Bible. As kids, I and my brother and sister grew up going to Sunday School and church each weekend. We were involved with youth groups and church choirs in middle school and high school. We heard lots of Bible teachings. In high school, I...

    Writing Lessons

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    So it was a few weeks ago that my oldest niece, with the help of my brother, asked me if I would take some time to help her with her creative writing. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that my niece, of her own volition, began to write a collection of stories...

    The Path

    by  •  • Writings • 0 Comments

    When the light began to fade and the night birds began to chatter and the whine of bugs filled the valley, the small old man shuffled out of the hut and began to walk his trail down to the water. The trail was clean sand and little round rocks, forgiving on his bare feet,...

    I thought this evening would be a good evening to try and do some archiving of some of my documents and images from various systems from over the years. In particular, it has been my desire and hope to go through all of my various old media caches (3.5″ disks, Zip disks, old CDs...

    We are a river that stretches from joy to grief from vibrancy to decay The winds of time blow around us and the sun beats down For one day we roll from morning to night from spring to winter from north to south from summit to sea Find the pool and circle in the...

    Vancouver Summer and the Kid

    by  •  • LifeHelps • 0 Comments

    When I was between my sophomore and junior years of college, I was happy to be able to participate in a summer missions project. Growing up as a Baptist kid in Southern Baptist churches, it was natural that I continued my denominational association in college. Right across the street from the University of New...
