Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend. Coffee is brewing and I believe I am rested up. Last night I had my doubts because I was so tired that I had a really hard time falling asleep. Finally though I did and arose with coffee on the mind, showered, dressed and here I am. With my surgery coming up in about a week, I have some thinking to do and thought I would share it with you all. So for today, some introspective on yours truly….

Do you ever ask yourselves, “Is it really just me”? As those of you that truly know me, I can be like an acquired taste. Not for everyone but those that love me, REALLY love me. Everyone else just kind of crinkles their nose and walks by. Part of the reason for that is three fold…

  1. After years of holding back, I typically say…

Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend. Coffee is brewing and I believe I am rested up. Last night I had my doubts because I was so tired that I had a really hard time falling asleep. Finally though I did and arose with coffee on the mind, showered, dressed and here I am. With my surgery coming up in about a week, I have some thinking to do and thought I would share it with you all. So for today, some introspective on yours truly….

Do you ever ask yourselves, “Is it really just me”? As those of you that truly know me, I can be like an acquired taste. Not for everyone but those that love me, REALLY love me. Everyone else just kind of crinkles their nose and walks by. Part of the reason for that is three fold…

  1. After years of holding back, I typically say what is on my mind.
  2. The message I feel I have goes against the modern Church.
  3.  I expect the best out of people, including their motives.

Typically these are the three reasons people seem to gravitate away from me; with my time getting short before my surgery though, my thoughts have turned to maybe I shouldn’t be this way. Maybe I should suppress my thoughts no matter the consequences; maybe I should just fall in line with the modern Church, go my Sunday’s and Wednesdays and shut up; and finally expect the worst from people and not help hold them and myself to a higher standard…

Now I say all of this with an honest motive, I don’t know if anyone can relate but it just gets tiring being the one almost everyone wants to avoid. My bride is the one exception, she is ALWAYS there for me, no matter what. She may offer a countermeasure or two to what I am feeling or saying but nevertheless she is always there and I am grateful for her beyond measure. However, I can’t even get people in my family and friend circle to read this blog; again I am grateful for those that do, but it gets frustrating you know? So it makes me wonder, is it all worth it? Is being this person that God has created more of a hindrance than help? I always thought in this world of evil, those three qualities above would go a long way in helping, now not so much…

In this world of 24 hours news and 24 hour social engagement, I hardly ever hear from my family and friends. Its almost like they feel like I’m a plague they want to avoid. It may not be true but when you see posts on Facebook but can’t get people to return a simple text, make you think hmmmm, maybe its me. Maybe it is and it shouldn’t matter? I mean again Jesus had twelve disciples, one of which betrayed Him, one always doubted Him, and one that completely denied Him at the most crucial points; so should I expect more than Jesus had? Probably not, but I’m definitely not Jesus either….Seems like those that fall in line with the world just have more fun and are more liked/loved. Does that even matter? I’m confused this morning, what say all of you? Can you relate?

Hope to hear from some of you soon…

Peace, Love, and Truth,

Where Is The Love?

In case you missed it 🙂

” Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins” 1 Peter 4:8

Good morning/afternoon everyone. Quick and to the point today, where is the love? Over the last few days and weeks I have seen alot of people spewing alot of hate from all sides of the table. You know which table I am talking about; the kneeling or standing during the Anthem table. A table which I have purposefully distanced myself from because every time something like this happens, instead of coming together in love we get what we have today. Division, hate, disrespect, and in most cases a general lack of understanding of each others’ point of view. Let me clear about this….we are to love each other no matter what! Did God not do the same for you?

For instance, I hear alot about how disrespectful people are because they are…

” Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins” 1 Peter 4:8

Good morning/afternoon everyone. Quick and to the point today, where is the love? Over the last few days and weeks I have seen alot of people spewing alot of hate from all sides of the table. You know which table I am talking about; the kneeling or standing during the Anthem table. A table which I have purposefully distanced myself from because every time something like this happens, instead of coming together in love we get what we have today. Division, hate, disrespect, and in most cases a general lack of understanding of each others’ point of view. Let me clear about this….we are to love each other no matter what! Did God not do the same for you?

For instance, I hear alot about how disrespectful people are because they are kneeling for the Anthem. Ok you may be right but do you truly understand why are military sacrifices they way they do? I’m sure when my nephews signed up to serve our country the way they have their thought wasn’t “Oooh, lets go sign up so people can respect us by standing at the flag!” No they signed up because they understand that this is pretty much the last country that gives you freedom and they help defend that freedom every day! Freedom to do things that you or I may not agree with but freedom nonetheless. So really who is the group of people being disrespectful? Makes one think a little huh?

In the end regardless of how we feel on any subject, our responses should be covered in love, not hate and division. If you hate what the President is doing, what love actions have YOU taken to counter it? Burning your merchandise and throwing a profanity laced tirade on Facebook is not countering hate with love; any  two year old can throw a fit, it takes the ultimate respect however to show others that disagree with you love and compassion. Maybe, just maybe that love action would lead to more understanding of the other side? Maybe that love action would help cover your own sins….hmmmmm

Think about it friends, give it some heartfelt thoughts before you take any more action. Love to all everyone and please, help this old guy out and share my blog with others.

Peace!
