My Blogging Problem

Posted by on Aug 26, 2016 in Site Business, Writer's Diary

I’m a writer. I write constantly, whether its reviews on Letterboxd, opinions on Video Games, or my first crack at a cartoon pilot for boys age 6-10, I am always pumping words onto the page, or screen, or wherever. It’s like I can’t stop myself.

But here, at least, I seem to have a wall, offering little more than occasional insightful post or a bevy of updates about which few people will have any interest.

UPDATES: Q2 2016

Posted by on Aug 18, 2016 in Site Business, Writer's Diary

What’s been happening?

There’s a bit, and it’s late. Here’s a rundown:

Life with Landon. Over 90 days have passed since the birth of my son. He becomes more wonderful every day. He’s now making more noises and facial expressions; he smiles often and follows us with his eyes. He’s the best; I adore him. And my wife; my goodness, my wife is a beautiful, strong woman.

THE GIFT OF WATER PROJECT continues to move forward and has crossed the $2500 mark. I am aiming for $15,000 by May 2017, and I will continue my personal efforts both fundraising and Selling on that eBay in order to get a well built via World Vision.

Writing! Writing! Writing!

Prayers & Answers

Posted by on May 13, 2016 in Faith, Hope, and Love

I was thinking about prayer recently…

Do you know what’s really awesome about prayer—-about asking, seeking, and knocking?

100% of the time, GOD answers correctly.

That is really powerful stuff.

We ask for the wrong things or the right things at the wrong time and God answers accordingly. He does not respond to our prayers incorrectly. Not ever. We may not like the answer, but we can always rest assured it is the correct one, because it is being answered by God.
This is encouraging for me. Hope it is for you as well!

When Cares Are Many

Posted by on May 12, 2016 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Love of Scripture

  

“When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.” 
— Psalms‬ ‭94:19‬ ‭ESV‬‬http://bible.com/59/psa.94.19.esv

Today, I have many cares.

My wife and I just made an offer on our condo, the baby could come at any time (literally), work has been really stressful, and the day-to-day of just doing what needs to be done to function has been challenging. We are often tired, unsure of what development each hour will bring, and dealing with all the emotional peaks and valleys of those dynamics.

This verse is a cornerstone in both her life and mine. It’s a game-changer on the daily. The tribulations of any given season can weigh on us; but when we return our eyes to the Lord’s throne, when we recall the command to not fear, and when we remember that we serve a perfect God over all things—–indeed, these truths cheer our souls.

Todays challenges become opportunities, and tomorrow becomes a day to embrace,  a new day to see God work and be a part of it!

I’m very thankful for the Psalms this morning!
Thanks for reading,
