Damnatio Memoriae…Again!

I wrote the original post some five years ago, trying to place within context the desecration of memory I saw taking place. Many Americans were judging historical figures based upon our modern ethos and condemning them for not acceding to our modern expectations. Now five years later, I see the renewed and continuing desire ofContinue reading “Damnatio Memoriae…Again!”

Still Waiting

Still Waiting Waiting on God’s timing can sometimes feel like an eternity; as if time itself has been stretched to an unbearable length, turning days into years. No one likes to wait, but some things are harder to wait for than others. One of the hardest things to wait on is God’s timing. So manyContinue reading “Still Waiting”

A Kind Word…

When life seems unfair, when we feel misused, when every day becomes a burden, our focus tends to shift from others to ourselves. We are beset on all sides by evil, whether we see it or not. I’m not talking about people, but evil spirits tempting us and telling us there is no hope. Don’tContinue reading “A Kind Word…”

A Quick Thought

I actually wrote about this a while back, but somehow life’s lessons continue to revisit me.  I’m currently waiting to hear back from my publisher’s editing team, which means my efforts toward publishing my new novel have stalled as I wait to hear from them. Although I want them to do a thorough job, waitingContinue reading “A Quick Thought”

At the beginning of December, I signed a contract to publish my novel; more to come on that in January.Continue reading “A Final Word (2015)”

What Am I Talking About?!

I’ve been blogging for exactly three months today. As I look back on my literary contributions to the World Wide Web, I would liken it to a mouse squealing with all his might in an empty warehouse. The echoes may help, but who really hears his cry. I would also liken it to a blindContinue reading “What Am I Talking About?!”

Stressed

You’re on your way to a meeting and your boss stops you to ask if you would explain the latest project to everyone; or you get to work and realize that report was due yesterday, or your boss decides to saddle you with another project on top of all you have already, or you’re sittingContinue reading “Stressed”

Change: How to cope with it.

Some days I feel like I’m on a ship on a calm ocean day; the water is placid and the ship cruises along with barely a ripple in the water. Life seems like a dream and nothing is wrong in the world. Other days I feel like I’m in a lifeboat in the midst ofContinue reading “Change: How to cope with it.”
