I Am Ready

The die has been cast. The mold has been set. I am unafraid to claim that I am a Disciple of Christ on this day and forevermore, in a world without end. Amen. I'm a part of the fellowship of ...

From America's Finest to Texas' Oldest- What a Difference A City Makes

·

It was odd to move across the country and see our San Diego mayor splashed across the news. What a mess! Now Bob Filner has been removed from office and everyone here has to know about it! Glad I didn't ...

Rodeo Daze-Cowboys and Drunk Indians

·

Piggin' strings and bucking shoots used to be part of my everyday life. Rodeo clowns were my constant companions and mutton busting came to be one of my favorite things. Of the two sports that originated in the U.S., baseball ...

Poly-Addictions Are Eating Us

·

When drugs meet alcohol, the results are crippling. It's called poly-addiction. The effects cannot even be calculated, they are so far-reaching. It's only when disaster hits that the situation is finally flushed out and exposed. By then, it's so late ...

Isn't This How They Make Diamonds?

Pressure. Pressure. And more pressure. Daily pressure. Hourly pressure. I forgot what it was like to be plugged in to the world. I have been in a cabin in the woods of the Cuyamaca Mountains for almost four years with ...

Dear Christo, U Wrapped My Heart!

Thank you so much for exposing us to your work, your life, even your wife. One time, I met you both and when I commented on her interesting hair color, she said that you had created it and it was ...

Cusco, Christ, And Coca Tea: Peru served up all three.

·

Up on the mountain at a distance, locals pointed when I asked if there were Christians here. I wanted to attend a church and asked some of the locals to direct me to their favorite place to worship. They pointed ...

I Dated a Dallas Cowboy!

·

And it almost brought the country club down. We should not have stopped there. It was Las Colinas in Irving, Texas, and I think my Dad paid hell afterwards. He never said a word. He was cool like that. But, ...

Opening a Vein Here...

My first writing assignment at SMU was to write my own obituary. It freaked me out but when the professor read my paper in front of the class, I was floored. I got an A+ which was rare at Southern ...

To Dr. Jack Wasserman,

At a dinner in your parents' home in the La Jolla Shores, I saw something years ago that still haunts me to this day. Now as I teach high school, I have recalled what I saw at that Seder dinner ...

God, Please Hold My Calls

·

If you've never gotten one, this won't make sense. If you have, you will understand the impact of getting five within four years. I'm not sure I could handle another anytime soon. I call them “death calls.” “There's been an ...

A Bully is A Bully is A Bully

Maybe every town has one, but in Julian, California, ours is active. He was always tormenting someone while I was there and everyone knew it. I had heard that he was trouble but didn't care as I didn't mix with ...

Greetings from 'Misfit Island'

I didn't name this place; my family did. Most of the residents here are hoofed and living out their days in peace. A few, including me, are here to heal. This camp consists of 36 acres deep in the heart ...

From Nacogdoches With Love

Here I am in the deepest part of Texas. Land of sweet tea and fried okra. Hell, they'd fry jello here if they could. I came to the call of a sick mother who finally said, “Come soon.” So one ...

Words from Hitesh

Hitesh resonates truth. He's young and I had to correct his English so I didn't put this in quotes but these are his words, heavily edited: Human beings behave in exact accordance to their values. We honor our highest value ...

Africanized Like a Bee

A tribal mindset. That's what we're missing. We completely forgot how it all started. Next to the wide open plains of the Serengeti in an area called the Masai Mara, I remembered. This land is home to the Masaai tribe. ...

A Word on Energy

No one before or since Einstein advanced our understanding of this crazy little thing called energy-but it is the basis for everything. Every piece of matter that ever was and ever will be started as pure energy and came down ...

Seashells On The Mountain

Finding a fossilized seashell in the garden by my cabin here in the Cuyamaca Mountains reminds me that I believe in God and evolution. Millions of years ago as the earth cooled, Pangaea broke apart and shifted many directions before ...

Make Your Life an Open Prayer
