Amazing Grace (Forgiveness and Redemption)

Amazing Grace (Forgiveness and Redemption)

Goodbye Pizza

Goodbye Pizza

My team hates me. Rather, my ex-team hates me, I should say. They think I’m a traitor. They think I lied to them. In a way, I guess I kinda did. An omission of truth is kinda the same thing, isn’t it? I didn’t even want to omit the truth, either, but...

Tis the Season

To many, the Christmas season is all about joy, friends, family, love, Faith, togetherness.. you get the idea. But it seems that these days all of the joy, love, and faith is getting impinged upon by a nastier element of the holidays.. thievery and idiocy. Apparently...
Just As I Am

Just As I Am

“Just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bid’st me come to thee, oh lamb of God I come. I come!” To many, these words are just lyrics to a song that they are forced to sing every Sunday at church. And, to...

Birthday Adventures

Birthday Adventures

I’ve had a few birthdays. Well, more than a few, honestly. They’ve generally been just plain old days, filled with “Happy Birthday’s,” dinner, and maybe a gift or two thrown in for good measure. No big deal, really. This year, though,...

Lions and tigers and… babies? Oh my!

The Man in the Park

So there I was, in the park. I’d gotten bored and decided to go out for a little walk, just me and the birds chirping in the breeze. I don’t usually have time to do anything like that, but sometimes you just have to get away, find a bit of quiet, and let...
Review: Liztek Wireless Doorbell

Review: Liztek Wireless Doorbell

We recently moved into a bigger house (a much-needed change). It’s a beautiful two-story home with hardwood floors, plenty of windows, patios.. and a single doorbell that you can’t even hear from upstairs. That, of course, makes it difficult to know when...
