Family Is A Scary Thing

Everyone belongs to a family. People from all walks of life have unique perceptions of what the nature and definition of family is. I think one apt common denominator in the world's view of family is that it is quite a precarious relational structure. In the bible, I observe that familial ties are all tangled… Continue reading Family Is A Scary Thing

The Batman In Us All

Back in February this year, I took my little brother to see “The Lego Batman Movie" and we really enjoyed it. Going to the movies is something we do together on a regular basis; it's our special bonding time. In fact, today, we went to the theater to see the new release of Pirates of… Continue reading The Batman In Us All

I’ve Got The Joy

I've heard it said humor is merely the evolutionary result of highly developed chemicals in our brain reacting to stimuli, but I beg to differ.

I know details are not always very intriguing but it's literally one of the… Continue reading God is in the details

A Needy & Callous Christian

Contrary to popular belief, narcissists aren't always easy to spot, because not all of them are selfish, shallow, vain, or hungry for prestige. There are other types of narcissists that don't have the “symptoms” most narcissists are understood to have. Some are needy and callous narcissists that present with very different behaviors. In fact, they can appear… Continue reading A Needy & Callous Christian

In many cultures around the world people are taught, almost from birth, to expend themselves toward constant work or expect unearned instant gratification. It's a rarity  to find individuals trained to be still,  humble, and lead a quiet life in the presence of the Lord. Accomplishment is defined by running and spinning, searching and grasping,… Continue reading A Lifetime of Waiting
