When I’m Gone (Dedicated to Shirley Anzaldua)

Posted on February 28, 2015

When I’m gone, Remember me, Not what brought me down, Remember me. When I’m gone, Reflect how I loved, Not that I am absent. Remember me. When I’m gone, Picture my smile, Not that I had cancer. Remember me. When I’m gone, Imagine my red bouncing hair, Not that I was taken too early. Remember me. When I’m gone, Think of how I loved to sing and dance, Not that you miss me. Remember me. When I’m gone, Remember how I shared the gospel, Not that you are without me. Remember I am with Jesus. When I’m gone, Just remember me. Advertisements

Super Bowl: Pressure vs. Joy

Posted on January 31, 2015

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! I’m charged up about the match-up this year between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. The Patriots come into the Super Bowl under a lot of pressure from the NFL to answer charges of whether they knowingly deflated footballs that were used in their championship game vs. the Indianapolis Colts. Whether they did or not will not be decided until after Super Bowl has been completed, so “Deflate Gate” is being put on hold by me for now. For the record, if they did cheat I hope the punishment fits the crime! Back to the game! I’m looking forward to seeing one of the greatest offensive leaders in the history of the NFL in Tom Brady,…

Do you hear me?

Posted on January 28, 2015

The weight of the world is so loud. Every individual tramples the other to gain the favor they crave, letting nothing hinder their egocentric efforts of me. Trampled pleas do not cry out for help but most urgently continue to yearn for the object of their burning desire. The world is so loud that those in need absorb the weight of silence in their muffled call of necessity. Help provide for needs. Don’t be a slave to wants. Do you hear me? “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” – Matthew 11:15

Vote!

Posted on November 4, 2014

Vote! I can still remember the first time I voted and honestly to this day, I feel like I voted for the best President that has ever lived during my existence on this earth. In Mrs. Neeley’s 5th grade classroom I voted for Ronald Reagan. I don’t really remember why I was so drawn to him but today I could definitely say it would be because the man stood up for America and meant what he said. Now my vote didn’t count that day but every year after that I remember enjoying the opportunity to cast my vote in the presidential classroom elections and I was even more thrilled when the candidate I voted for was elected to office. Today isn’t Election Day for…

Give an Answer

     I was hosting a youth gathering at my home recently where I showed them a recorded message from Francis Chan. In the message Chan talked about how we receive so many messages and do nothing with them. He gave the analogy of telling his daughter to clean her room and she didn’t do it until about the fourth time of being told. He said what if his daughter came back like we do with how we treat the word and direction we’ve been given by God’s word. “Dad I wrote down what you told me about cleaning my room, Dad, I memorized that you said to clean my room and finally Dad, some of my friends and I are going to start…
