The Talk

This last weekend wraps up a year of two challenges I set myself; one, starting a radio show, and two, giving a talk to a large group.

I've shared the first experience here but not the second because, well, there was not much to talk about.

Last year on vacation and in the midst of a merry dinner at the lake lodge, a topic I have become concerned and passionate about came up, as I saw it affecting this lovely spot. A couple who owned a vacation house there said I should give an…

Mark 8:34-9:1

The first requirement of following the servant king

Commitment

I want to tell you about three remarkable people.

 

Johnny Fulton was run over by a car at age three. He suffered Crushed hips, broken ribs, a fractured skull, and compound fractures in his legs. Doctors doubted he would survive. But he would not give up. When he grew up, he ran the half-mile in less than two-minutes.

Lou Gehrig—you’ve heard of him—was such a…

            i was born on august 22nd 1991. it has been 21 years since then and i have became a man. well, legally, but do i qualify as a man morally? well i believe i do i have been raised by a code long held up by the many generations past from the mountains of the Virginia's.  family comes first, they will be all you have. respect your elders, they teach you their mistakes so you don't have to repeat them. go to church on Sunday, though i'm not particularly a christian this point still…

Being Tamed from "The Little Prince"

It was then that the fox appeared.

"Good morning," said the fox.

"Good morning," the little prince responded politely, although when he turned around he saw nothing.

"I am right here," the voice said, "under the apple tree."

 

"Who are you?"…

How big is your tent?

How big is your tent?

I have done more deep thinking in the past few days than I have done in the previous year.  The motivating factor has been the death of a young co-worker’s father.  On 6-11-2013 he was diagnosed with a Stage 4 Glioblastoma brain tumor, and given 4 – 6 weeks to live.  24 days later, he passed away on July 4th.  He was 62 years old, and left a wife, two daughters and a son.

Last night, his family held a memorial service for him, under a tent, in…

Days: 7-13

Day 7: Reconnect

    There are too many great people I met & lost in my life. There are one or two which I can think of off the top of my head. If I can find their numbers or addresses then I will reconnect. I am one who has always considered friendship all too important to blow off. There are a couple problems though: 1) I never learned true friendship, either how to be a real friend, or what a real friend is. Luckily, through the help of a few good men, and my God, I am growing to…

30 days to a better man: days 4, 5, 6...

Day 4: Testosterone



Alright, so I didn't know most of what day 4 had been written about. Testosterone? Yeah, I have it. I know it's what makes me a man. I know it gives me muscles, and makes private time with my woman better (For both of us!). But I didn't know what facts of life were killing it, or that changing some "healthy" habits could actually prove healthier! So here are my top 3 to change.



Soy intake: Enough is enough! Soy? Why can't I have milk, whey, or (Heaven…

Pull this thing out of me - or, Gigging for Grandaddy

If there was any punishment meted out from this incident, I never heard it.Maybe my dad told me, but I must have been laughing too hard to hear it.

I’ve been a fan of the Tarzan of the Apes books by Edgar Rice Burroughs since my dad got me hooked on them when I was in 3rdor 4th grade.
