One Year 6

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.

Same Love

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. ...

The Vision Tarried 1

The Vision Tarried
Habakkuk 2:3 says At the time I have decided, my words will come true. You can trust what I say about the future. It may take a long time, but keep on waiting— it will happen! Not terribly long after you have your first child you start getting the “when are you going to have ...

Rage Against my Beliefs? 8

Recently Danielle sent me an article from Rage Against the Minivan regarding the issue of marriage equality and Christianity. I, of course, read the article and couldn’t wait to post some thoughts. The author’s main beef is that they perceive Christians as trying to push their religious beliefs on others / use their religious beliefs to ...
