Driving In My Car

Sometimes the best road trips happen when you’re driving by yourself. Don’t get me wrong, road tripping with friends is cool. Dollar store snacks. Conversations about the most meaningless things. Making memories for a lifetime. I mean that’s a highlight of college. However,  road trips by your lonesome are like no other. Maybe it’s because…

Book Worm

Remember back in grade school when Pizza Hut had the Book It program? If you read five books, then you got a personal pan pizza for free. Well, I never did get that personal pan. Why? I never put the time in to read. Ugh! It was so easy, too! One fish, two fish, red…

Sunday Morning

Today is Sunday, and I can’t wait to do one thing: Praise God!! The last time I was in church was last Sunday. We had some work done on Gospel Tabernacle (cheap plug), so Pastor canceled weekly services. This was my first completely free week (Sunday-Sunday) in a very long time. I filled it with…

Say Thank You

In the scheme of relationships, compliments play a huge role. I’m not talking about the meaningless “You’re so fine I’d drink your bathwater!” nonsense (If you think about it, that’s really gross!!). I mean showing appreciation when your significant other doesn’t feel the best. Be it looks, emotionally, or physically, compliments can really boost one’s…

The Loud Silence that is All Lives Matter

Ever since the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, there has been a group of people who are thoroughly offended. Such is life in America where people can get uptight about how you sneeze. However, this group is particularly interesting. In the scheme of being offended, they take the cake. Why? They really aren’t…

In Memory Of

I just read an interesting post by my friend on his Facebook page. My friend was in the Air Force for about 12 years. The time we lived in the same city he was deployed on three or four different occasions. At the time, I really didn’t understand the weight of being deployed. I hung…

America On Fire

I cringe as I watch America’s presidential election unfold before my eyes. To be clear, I don’t have any interest in the frontrunners for the Republican, Democratic, or Libertarian parties. In fact, I believe there’s corruption in ALL of the political parties. Probably more than we know. I shake my head at my friends who…

Two Cents and Change

We live in the age of opinions. Everybody has one, and we are more than willing to share it. It’s quite the interesting era to say the least. People no longer look for truth. Rather, they cling to their viewpoint even when the facts are slapping them in the face. I can guarantee you have said or heard someone…

It’s Gorgeous

There’s nothing like waking up with the sun shining bright outside!! It gives a feeling of freshness and renewed aspirations. It makes me want to get up and seize the day! This morning was no different. For the second straight day, the sun greeted me with warmth and love. My mood is automatically joyous. It’s…

Am I Black Enough?

My life has been one constant question. I’m sure that’s no different than anyone else. I mean we all have questions that could follow us for the duration of our lives. However, this particular question looks at multiple facets of my character. It’s been asked over and over. It’s been posed in various situations and…

He That Believeth

I live in a world where I’m shunned for being a Christian. I am mocked. I am ridiculed. My intelligence is questioned. I am verbally abused. All of this because I believe in Jesus. This isn’t a surprise to me because Jesus Himself was shunned by the crowd. He was mocked, beaten, and spat on….

The Love Affair with Free Speech

If there’s one amendment that is known nationwide, it is the First Amendment. It is as follows: Okay, so let me rephrase. A portion of the First Amendment is known nationwide, and that is…. Freedom of speech. Americans love that right. The right to speak our minds when we get good and ready. The right…
