Growing up wasn’t a fun time for me; and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way. Although I loved both my dad and mom, there are traits about both of them that I’ve worked hard to not be like. My dad was very quiet and introverted, so through the years I’ve tried … More How Far Does Your Apple Fall From The Tree?
Have you been there? The place where you imagine everyone looking at you wants to take their thumb and pointer-finger and make the big “L” on their forehead as they stare in your direction? “LOOOOSER!!!” I’ve felt like that way often throughout my life. Growing up, it seemed like I never did anything right in … More I’m A Winner – Not A Loser
Who are you? Many of us tend to look at our past mess-ups and failures and think we can never be good enough. Questions flood through our mind like the following: I’m unlikable because … I’m the way I am because… I’m a failure because… I’m ugly because… I’m a loser because… Can I just … More Marred Yet Perfect
It’s been kind of depressing for me to dig down and remember all the yukky stuff I got into during my younger years. But what’s past is past, right? I can’t go back and undo all the things I did, but I can learn to accept them – and hopefully help others get through their … More Humility – Learning The Hard Way
Phew! Quite frankly I’m thrilled about finally completing my posts on Evil, because it’s been hard remembering all that stuff. Some memories never fade away, especially the bad ones, right? I originally started this whole series on Becoming What I Came To Be because it gets tiring listening to people make excuses on how they can’t be … More Honor & Integrity – Not A Whole Lot
There’s a reason I’ve named this post as I have. Why? Because evil has no hold on me anymore! I am now a child of the King of Kings (1 John 5:18), and quite frankly there is no greater calling than that. In my last post, I wrote of one of the most terrifying moments in my … More Evil – Final!
A couple weeks ago in my last post, I began talking about a particular evening when I left my friend’s house for my long walk home, like usual. It was very dark – probably around midnight. When I had walked about 1/2 mile I could see a car coming towards me on the same side … More Evil – Out To Get Me (3)
Continuing on with my first post in Evil – Out To Get Me, I really can’t recall exactly when I realized something dark and sinister was stalking me, but it most likely was around the time when my best friend (whose mother and aunt were witches) and I snuck out one night to go see … More Evil – Out To Get Me (2)
Witches… Growing up – just like the majority of kids – I thought witches were just made-up characters from storybooks. On Halloween, you’d put on a black cape and pointy black hat, as well as a fake large pointy nose if you had it. And don’t forget your broomstick! Then you’d practice the wicked laugh … More Evil – Out To Get Me (1)
Was there really such a thing as peace? I never felt it during my teenage years – as a matter of fact I really didn’t understand peace at all until I was in my 30’s. In the late 1960’s to the early 1970’s when I was a teen, the hippie culture was definitely in. The … More Peace – Trying Everything
