When you slip and fall down your first instinct is to pick yourself up and brush off any trace of the embarrassing incident. In regards to the times when we slip up and fall short of the standards that our Heavenly Father set for us, our first instinct, well for me, is to run. To…
I am in a crisis.
A number of things in my life look dead and hopeless. My lake seems to be filled with rotten fish at the moment.
My family – rotten tilapia.
My job search – rotten tuna.
My relationships – semi-rotting sardines.
Troubles can wash up on your front door with a quickness that will shock Doomsday Preppers
All eyes are on the West, specially the USA. Even the country’s frenemy, Russia is looking to the West at the extraordinary event that has unfolded. Extraordinary in that no one could actually believe that a reality TV show host has managed to become President of the USA. Especially on the heels of a political…

My goal is to never ‘preach’ but to talk about real issues especially mental health, depression etc that even as a Christian I battle with.
Today I want to share something I find easier disclosing to ‘strangers’ than I would to my own mother.
This post is just me thinking out loud (online) on a bad day.
