None of my clothes fit anymore. Recently, I’ve lost 28 pounds. Exciting, right? No more fat daddy! But even better than the weight loss, is the way I feel. I’m more alert, less fatigued, and less anxious. Even though I’m full of energy now, I’m sleeping better than ever. In the words of James Brown, […]
WARNING: CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE.
That warning label is not uncommon. Do you have a gas grill? A can of hair spray? Ever seen that warning on a huge truck going down the interstate? That label means don’t mess with me too much, or in the wrong way, or I just might explode. On you. In flames.

The bank is about two miles away, but I had to have some answers… and some money. Long story short, I was right. Hacked for the second time since October. There’s not much in life that is a bigger inconvenience. Plus, I hate that feeling of being violated.

I was sitting at the kitchen table, reading over some precious comments on my post from January 2nd and thanking God for each of you. I began to let your words really sink into my spirit as I sat there, ruminating over the encouragement I received from a couple of you. I was reminded that […]
It’s involuntary. It just happens. You don’t have to think about it, it doesn’t require focus and concentration, you just DO it… Until you’re underwater. Until you’re drowning. Until that life-giving oxygen gets replaced with something that doesn’t belong and your lungs and nostrils fill up with something that’s not supposed to be there and […]
