My day in court.

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit a courtroom for the first time in my life. I can’t say it was something I was looking forward to. I’ll avoid the unnecessary details about what brought me there, other then to say it was regarding a debt that I at least partially and rightfully owed. I […]

Stop Worrying. Start Praying.

I think I saw every wide range of negative emotion possible yesterday on facebook on my newsfeed as the election results rolled in. Anger. Despair. Uncertainty. Frustration. Annoyance. Outrage. Resentment. Hopelessness. For those of us concerned about Obama’s character, economic plans, foreign policies, and so much more– maybe these emotions are justified and expected. I […]
