Dear Fitzy (4th Birthday) 3

Dear Fitzy, I wanted to write you a post on your 4th birthday to have something for us both to look back on someday. I can’t believe you’re 4 already. I know it’s cliche, but time really does fly. Dear time, please slow down, because before we both know it, you’ll be out the door, ...

Where Do I Fit In? 1

Have you ever wondered to yourself, “where do I fit in?” Well, good news, you’re not alone. At least one other person has – yours truly. I’ve detailed my manic episode I experienced in July of 2013 here and over at The Marriage Fight (a blog Danielle and I coauthor). You can read those for some information ...

Net Neutrality 

As you may or may not know, the FCC voted 3-2 in favor of Net Neutrality this week, a plan to keep the Internet free and open. Proponents say the ruling will ensure that companies like Comcast and Verizon can’t create specialized Internet “fast lanes” where they could charge more for faster access to services ...

One Year 7

One year ago tonight I was sitting in a room of the second ER I had visited in the middle of a manic episode / mental breakdown. I don’t remember all the details of those couple of days, but there are some that stick out. I remember talking to one of my best friends, Dave ...

10 Years 2

10 years ago I thought I knew what I was doing. I was marrying my best friend. And, while that was true, there was no way I could have known what the next 10 years would bring. Here’s some of the high/low lights of the past 10 years: the loss of a job moving in with ...

The World vs. George Zimmerman 9

We’re less than 12 hours since the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman verdict. I wish now I could hop in my TARDIS and go back in time to follow the case more closely from the beginning, but I can’t. I feel like I missed a TON of crucial information and misinformation. Misinformation. That’s my ...

New Instagram Feature

So, Instagram recently did an update which allows you to embed your IG images on any page, making them more accessible (for those of you who need said accessibility). Here’s a sample from our ice cream trip tonight. He’s the best!

Enoch Walks With God…and Man 4

Enoch Walks With God...and Man
So today was the big day. We found out that baby Barden will be a boy! Truth be told we weren’t terribly surprised. You see we received a prophecy on September 8, 2012 that this would happen. In fact, this prophecy was specific down to the name of the child. I’ve attached unedited (and overlapping, ...

Same Love

So, if you listen to Top 40 radio, chance are you’ve heard Mackelmore’s newest song – The Same Love. It’s a lyrically interesting song, for sure. And Mac, if I may refer to him as such, makes some good points. We’re all God’s children Stereotypes are bad Preaching hate, especially from the pulpit, is always ...

Forgiveness

Last year I wrote a fairly stinging post regarding some hurtful experiences dealing with “the church”. While I never named names, if you run in my circle of friends and acquaintances, it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who I was referring to. Those words were mostly written out of hurt and frustration. ...
