The Eulogy: 2013

  Over the last few days I’ve witnessed so many who’ve cursed or eulogized the last year; yes 2013. Instead of rejoicing in the 365 days of life God allowed them, they dismiss the gifts of grace in hopes of happenstance instantly or magically changing their circumstances. What makes a person believe that the tick of a second-hand tock is going to erase the hardships, the failures, the could-have-beens, the should-have-beens and the never-have-beens?

“Mary” Christmas

How You Can Change for the Best

While sitting, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles with it.  While doing this, draw the number “6″ in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Someone smarter than me will have to explain why, but I do know there are some things we do that alters the way other things work in our lives. Jesus taught that He came to seek and to save us []

The Foundation of Doing Life

“Do for others what you would like them to do for you” (Matthew 7:12). This passage is often described as the Golden Rule of the Bible. If practiced, it can change your life and even your world. Mahatma Ghandi was instrumental in India’s freedom by instituting the non-violent teachings of Christ – Ghandi was Hindu. Dr. Martin Luther King was a Baptist preacher that taught the same non-violent principles of the Prince of Peace, and changed the racial injustices of our nation. []
