Difficult Tasks

Moses said to the people:
“If only you would heed the voice of the LORD, your God,
and keep his commandments and statutes
that are written in this book of the law,
when you return to the LORD, your God,
with all your heart and all your soul.

“For this command that I enjoin on you today
is not too mysterious and remote for you.
It is not up in the sky, that you should say,
‘Who will go up in the sky to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?’
Nor is it across the sea, that you should say,
‘Who will cross the sea to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?’
No, it is something very near to you,
already in your mouths and in your hearts;
you have only to carry it out.” Dt 30:10-14

I took a few days off from writing. I honestly could not find the words to express exactly how I was feeling about everything and anything. Since the last time I wrote something, the United States have practically been on fire. Tensions among everyone have run very high, and it seems that we are more polarized than ever before. That may be true. With the news coming at us immediately now, we are feeling the stress of situations in almost real time, which is causing anxiety levels to fly off the chart.

New Year…..

Children, it is the last hour;
and just as you heard that the antichrist was coming,
so now many antichrists have appeared.
Thus we know this is the last hour.
They went out from us, but they were not really of our number;
if they had been, they would have remained with us.
Their desertion shows that none of them was of our number.
But you have the anointing that comes from the Holy One,
and you all have knowledge.
I write to you not because you do not know the truth
but because you do, and because every lie is alien to the truth.

1 Jn 2:18-21

Down and Out

I am sitting here this morning, inside my tiny grey cube, and pondering all the things that I have seen this week. It is almost overwhelming to think about every single thing. All the joy, happiness, sadness, fear, hatred, and everything in between, it is almost causing me to go into a panic. Continue reading “Down and Out”

My Mind

Here is another one that was sent to me. I wrote this one back in 1999 as well. It is fun to look at some of the things that I wrote back then, and see the progression that my writing has taken (or not). It is another poem, and it is still sort of true to this day. Continue reading “My Mind”

A Saturday In Fall

Today has been a very good day. I got to spend lots of time with my children, which is always a bright spot to my weekend. They are my world, and the reason why I get up and go to work everyday. They are the reason (my wife included) I went back to school to try to get a better job and ensure they have a better future. So, while they are taking a nap from their busy day with Dad, I made the mistake of reading the news. Continue reading “A Saturday In Fall”
