It’s 4 a.m. I should be asleep. Clearly I’m awake. Wide awake. My mind is racing constantly and I don’t know where to or from. I might be going a little crazy or perhaps every one in their right mind questions everything at different times. I wish I could have waited until I woke up to think. Night and morning are the quietest for me. It’s where my thoughts aren’t...
Let’s build a ship and push off to sea.
But where she used to say “I need you.” Now….”I don’t.” -Mewithoutyou
I’m just a guy. I live in Oklahoma. I don’t own a pair of cowboy boots. I care too often what people think. I think too much and care too little. I am impulsive at times. I look for quick fixes. That is not the case always. Who I am is not found in what I do or do not do. It’s deeper than that. It comes from within. It’s like a path that you follow and you know it is home....

It’s okay. I’m a lifeguard.
I have a peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of my most difficult trial. The Lord is a strong tower. He is faithful. He is good. He is risen!
One day when I does not exist Only we Two, but one Love of the Father The glue that holds us Keeps us as we wait I whisper sweetly (Forgetting to breathe) All the lovely things (Though not as lovely as you) Exhale slow Breathe in deeply Your smell, intoxicating Yes, one day (One day awakened by love) I’ll gently lift your veil Softly kiss your lips, mine Ours You and I, we...
Sunny with a chance of natural disasters
Life as we know it can change in an instant. Change is inevitable but growth is a choice. When situations and people hurt you and let you down, relax. If you have breath left in your lungs, you have the capacity to live. In Ecclesiastes Solomon says that there is a time for every emotion. It’s natural to react to situations and it’s a blessing. So many people live with dead hearts and...
