When a man, in the world’s view, is viewed as strong he has everything put together. His clothing, his home, his finances and his relationships. It stays in this order as viewed by the objective world. When a man, in the kingdom culture, has his life together there are more things to align and the […]Read More I Am Weak.
If you told a visually impaired person what the a painting was like, you might say “it is like soft music.” If you told another, you might say “it’s like soft velvet fabric.” When they discussed it with each other, they would go on and on, neither would have evidence. That’s okay. If we were […]Read More The Sight of Love
The storm that brought the alleged disaster. What did it bring you? Did it bring you peace? I’ll bet it did. Did you trust the pain it brought at first, I doubt it. I bet it moved you out of that place harshly and without warning. I wonder how many trees cleared out of your […]Read More The Storm that Builds

Didn’t watch it. Wouldn’t watch a Republican debate on the subject even without an incumbent. Haven’t seen TV in over 2 months. Life’s never been better, but these are not the points. People in of and of themselves are individuals living their own story. No person on this earth unless they are a family or […]Read More Be the Change You Wish to See
