Busted Trust

My car getting hit by a bus. The first time didn’t do it. Getting hit by the guy in the parking lot of my insurance company didn’t do it. Having surprise open-heart surgery at 40 didn’t do it. My wife getting hit by a truck didn’t do it. Getting hit by a different bus for... Continue Reading →

Got-Your-Back Tracker

I was having a terrible time keeping myself on the straight-and-narrow. I had worked my way all the way up to the green Newbie Number Tag. I was close to being considered a real Christian but I was sinning all the time. I needed help. I tried changing my habits. I tried changing my heart.... Continue Reading →

The Shell Game

Requiem for the Struggle

I have been having a terrible time getting back into the rhythm of writing this blog since returning from our furlough. Life tends to cycle. It is a breathing organism.
