Wish I may, wish I might…

…first star I see tonight…” A new realization cane to mind recently; when I was a child loving in South Carolina and Texas I always wanted to live somewhere it snowed and I wanted a horse. Driving hone from work yesterday, I looked up at the stars I used to wish on miles away and…

The Beauty of God

The beauty of God has gone unnoticed, from my perspective by the others is this metal bucket hurtling across the asphalt and ice. It is veiled by longs pieces of wood stuck deep in the ground to grow. It is also covered by distractions. Whether it be by others singing, talking, or what others have…

My Mix Tape

NOTE: I’m putting the songs in order as I think of them, not in order of relevancy to my life, because I’m sure whether in the past or later in life, they will be relevant multiple times. “Can’t Shut Up” Anthem Lights “Stay Beautiful” Taylor Swift”His Favorite Christmas Story” Capitol Lights “Why ya wanna” Jana Kramer “Must Have Done Something Right” Relient…

A Beautiful Reality

I look out the window and it is as if I have walked into a picture. The scenery around me during the winter is like pictures in a calendar for January. During the summer, God’s seasonal decorations beat any pictures. Had I not seen a moose walking around or a raven flying in the sky,…

Technology and America

What happened to the simple stuff? What happened to your basic things? Why do there have to be twenty different brands selling the same thing? Why is it that cars are bought for the computer inside or the fact that it’s a hybrid? Why do we always need the ‘newest’ things? How come kids need…

Death and Life

When someone tells their loved ones before they die, “Do not cry for me” they speak the truth, especially if they are going to heaven. Death is not the end of one’s story. Death is not the “The End” for someone’s life. Death is the end of a person’s “Chapter One”. The prelude. The beginning….

Realtionship Not Religion

If I am supposed to write the Word on my heart and if I wear my heart on my sleeve should I than have a cross or bible verse on my wrist? If I am supposed to have godly thoughts should I tell someone about God and ask them to put the penny for my…

Cloud Mattress

I wonder, are clouds the angels mattress? There are silly little sayings that when there is thunder and lightning, angels are bowling (and other tales of the sort). I think another good tale would be that of the clouds, not the ones that thunder and rumble, or those that throw bolts of electricity, or those…

Clouds

Clouds Clouds are God’s temporary mountains. They rarely look exactly the same, yet are named constantly. Some days they are lions from Africa and other days they are lions from the sea. They live up with the sun but sometimes comedown to visit the surface dwellers. They are predicted and yet are so unpredictable. They…

God is the Sunrise

I was looking out the window of our car at the one bit of sunrise I could see amidst its stormy gray foreground covered by ice droplets that had formed on the passenger side window. The further away from my house we got, and the closer to ‘humanity’ we got, my view of God’s encouraging…

Mayflower Compact and The Port 5 Compact

The two Compacts are written in chronological order. “In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of…

big and bigger and BIGGER

When I’m on the ground my world seems huge. Then I get on the horses. They make me feel small. Then I climb a tree and look at the leaves. The veins are so intricate, it’s amazing. Later, I travel to visit family in the lower 48. I look out of the window and I…
