Medic! Medic! : Helping the Wounded Live

from the archives July 13, 2006 On the battlefield a fallen soldier will often lay there near death, expecting death, when a comrade will stop and offer comfort and aid. Encouraging and strengthening his fallen comrade simply through comfort, the yell will follow, “Medic! Medic!” as help is sought that will bring the wounded soldier the medical attention that is needed. There are times when death will come too quickly or help will come too […]

Life in the Desert | Shaping the Spirit Within

From the archives April 27, 2006 The journey through life, full of many twists and turns, can at times leave you breathless, wondering where you went wrong. It appears that going wrong is the only obvious explanation for the turmoil that you face. With the soul parched, struggling to find meaning and purpose, the desolate landscape of a desert saps the life out of each step. With the heel dragging, the footfall landing on cacti, […]

Everybody Hurts | Love is Life’s Emotional Journey

From the Archives. Many writers and editors critique the wordiness of my writing. I encourage you to embrace that feature. I’m not just sharing head-knowledge.

This is where the sh1t has to get off the pot. I’m shaken to my core, fully recognizing and not wanting to look, that I simply […]

Where ya been?

Ha! I said I’d be posting something every day. Did you see what happened over the weekend? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! I had time, or could have made time, I’m sure. So what happened? I see hidden in the corner of my [[consciousness]], this petulant brat who wants to snub his nose at all the demands of people. He just wants to be selfish. He wants some attention, some care, and some love. He didn’t want […]

Tears of Heaven

I’m a guy, and I don’t want to cry. It is not something that is easy to explain, nor easy to share. Gawd, why am I even writing about this? Well, this week has been spent in half day workshops with an [[eclectic]] group of men from all walks of life. I have to say, it is my first experience with a group of men, versus co-ed, and I’m quite enjoying the experience. As the […]
