Time to Rise

Easter 2017 has successfully come. This is an especially busy time for me. I have many church duties that magnify when Easter comes around. Instead of focusing on the great task, I rely on God to get me through. He blesses me through the fast-paced week that lies before me. For that I am thankful….

Peace

Last night was one of those nights. Sleep eluded my grasp at every toss and turn. I’m staying in a hotel which means…….people. What I would assume were young twenty-somethings were loud. Doors were slammed. Voices were carrying on boisterously in the hallway. Sleep just didn’t want to be my friend last night. I tried…

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…

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…

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….

Friday Feeling and Monday Blues

Friday is here!! Let’s us praise God for carrying us through another week! People love Friday because it signals so many good things. The weekend! Time off to relax, enjoy family, and hang with friends. Summer time Fridays mean camping trips, lake or beach fun, and grilling outside. The sun is shining with a slight…

Harmony from the Rooftop

Well, I was nominated for another award! It’s so incredibly awesome to know that a fellow blogger appreciates your writing. Not only the writing but the content you produce. You guys know I hit some heavy subjects, but discussion is essential to understanding. As bloggers, we share our stories, have our views, and write from…

Always Missed, Always Loved

Grief is a very interesting emotion. The aspiring psychologist in me compartmentalizes to step back and view grief from an intellectual perspective. I did this the night my grandmother passed away. What’s interesting about it is compartmentalization in itself was my initial grief. The shock of her death had not hit me. Yet. Thus, I…

The Next Michael Jordan

Like Mike! If I could be like Mike. You remember that Gatorade commercial? Let me refresh your memory. That commercial came out when I was around 6 or 7 years old. MJ was the hottest thing in professional sports. Kids everywhere used to emulate his every movement. The way he wore his clothes, his on-court…
