The Writer

Hopefully some of my hind-sights are 20/20

I would starve as a writer. Thankfully I have another means of financial support. Even though I am not paid to express my viewpoints on any subject, I really enjoy expressing my thoughts for you to read on electronic paper.

My religious beliefs have changed over the years. On this website I have deleted most of my essays, simply because everyone prefers their denominational “Traditions of men” to my more spiritual and Godly viewpoints L.O.L.

The Protestant Reformation is proof that Christianity was changed, for the Apostle Paul said that after his death that wolves would come in and not spare the flock. The Protestant Reformation didn’t take Christianity back to 1st Century teachings!!!

Below is my condensed version of life’s important issues.

Common LIfe Mysteries

Being Human
Isn’t it neat that we laugh and cry in the same language! And, we all have hidden or damages emotions, buried in a sea of pain. Our emotions and feelings are our common bond with all of humanity. More often than not, they amplify our pain and decrease our joy in living more than they should have the right or the power to do.

Giving Up
Taking the path of least resistance. Don’t give up! “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Good Works & Grace
Are like beautiful or handsome identical twins. When we are blessed by one of them, we are not sure which one we are thanking. Just be appreciative in the ethereal and the earthly realm.

Pain & Pleasure
We struggle with the realization that life is not static; change is inevitable: It goes in cycles from good to bad, or bad to good; So relax, be patient and try to endure the whole cycle.

Experiences
Blessings and responsibilities embrace life endeavors and are parallel and equal in intensity from the greatest to the least. Even with grace, the outcome has to be positive and in balance.

Death: The Ultimate Heartache
God chooses our fate or destiny and even though someone special to me proceeds me in death my love will endure the pain and I very much would want to spare them theirs.

Reality Check
Sing your song – develop your strengths; Carpe Diem – seize the moment (live in the present); and remember – don’t take yourself and life too seriously, we all have faults.

Goals In Life
God has given us: A mind, to know Him personally; a will, to serve Him; emotions, to express the joy of our salvation; a body, to contain His Spirit; and loved ones, friends, and even strangers, to love and forgive.
