• 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.

    While overall today was a well executed day, it was also a challenging one. I started the day working off of my newest to-do list, which I am trying to incorporate into my life because I so often need help getting things done, and I had two items on it that were going to...

    Today was a good day, and by all accounts, it felt that way from the get go this morning- despite another cat gift found in the front room. After dressing, I discovered that French Roast in the coffee maker is actually a blend that I like (with French Vanilla). At work, I felt like...

    Today was a normal Tuesday in most aspects. I got up. I made coffee. I went to work. I had small group. It was different in two ways though. Before work, I had a medical appointment with a specialist whose office was on the west side, in a direction opposite from where I work...

    Regardless of anything else, I am always aware of time passing. I always have been. I’ve always had a sense that my life began at a point on a line, and at some point in the near or distant future, it will end. I know my days are numbered. I am fairly healthy right...

    In some seasons of my life, it can feel like being is divided into three layers. On the surface is the layer of action, where the day to day bustle of life happens. In the innermost one, people meet and share their souls, and find camaraderie and sympathy and compassion, and it’s there they...

    An Intro

    by  •  • Dear Diary • 1 Comment

    Shortly after moving into my present home nearly two years ago, I would often find myself driving south on Wyoming to run errands on weekend mornings and see him. Out of place in my neighborhood, he would be walking north each time- a middle-aged African-American man with short wiry gray hair dressed in a...

    My boss asked me this morning what I did this weekend, and I responded with a “not much”, because thinking about big activities, I didn’t really do much over the weekend. I watched a Lobo basketball game. I cleaned out the litter box. I ran a circuit with Thorson on the Loop. I paid...

    Positive Christianity

    by  •  • GraceThoughts • 0 Comments

    I’ve had several good conversations with a work colleague this week about Christianity, and how it should impact a life. These conversations grew out of some reflections I had talking with a friend and also from considering the experiences shared by others I have known that felt similarly: Christianity is negative. The key complaint...

    “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” ~ Luke 15:20 It’s been a good day, but my mind has wandered all over within it.  I’ve thought about the...

    Yesterday was a good day.   It was the first day I felt peace about doing this sabbatical thingy, and it was the first day I felt like I did it mostly right. I got up later in the morning, free from obligations, and while my friends collected at church, I was able to slowly...
