Hatred is consuming and awful; and unfortunately, I’m in the bogs of it. Well, not really the bogs, but more the outer rim. As much as I despise the word and the meaning, I really do hate someone. I am consumed with how much I dislike him, everything from what he says, to the way he speaks, andContinue reading “Lessons on moving out of hatred, from someone who’s still stuck there.”

Floods, Coping, and Pride.
Nashville flooded. I’m sure that everyone knows this by now; locally we experienced it, friends of locals saw it on Facebook, and nationally, it made news a few days ago. During the floods, while I watched a building float down Interstate-24 on TV, a road which I was driving on a mere two hours beforehand,Continue reading “Floods, Coping, and Pride.”
You probably won’t agree with me, but that’s okay.
Don Miller recently posted a blog about whether God has a plan or not for you. This is one of those “blogs in response to another blog” things, so I apologize for that. The article is short, so go read it. The gist of it is that God does not map our lives, and generally people who ascribe toContinue reading “You probably won’t agree with me, but that’s okay.”
I just did a quick tally of the things I use every single day. Only 23. However, I grouped things like sheets and blankets together, so it’s more than that single number. I also will probably stumble across more things that I don’t use every day, but still need. It seems though that minimalism is possible….and itContinue reading “23 Things”

I didn’t really get it then, but I didn’t have an issue with it so I agreed. I get it now why my parents wanted me to do that,Continue reading “Read your Bible, Stay in School.”
The C Word
Commitment. It is not the concept of commitment alone that terrifies me, the word alone can do that to me. If you’ve ever studied psychology, then you understand a few things that most other people don’t get: depression is not a fleeting feeling, everyone’s got some kind of issue, and the word ‘phobia’ is terriblyContinue reading “The C Word”
I am the type of person that needs to be with myself a lot. It’s not that I don’t want to be around people, but that I spend a lot of time in my head trying to work things out. I like to analyze, internalize, and process interactions that I have. For me, this simply cannotContinue reading “Finding Space”

The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating — in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.Continue reading
Nature is kind of amazing.
