Changes

Sometimes I am amazed at myself. that I mean, how much I’ve changed in the past 13 years. 13 years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar and a severe mood disorder.  Over the course of the next 3 years or so, and after therapy and meds, I began to settle down and get control of…

What Do We Do?

It rarely happens but I’ve had a rough 3 days.  It began on Tuesday evening. I got angry with a neighbor to the point where I was cruel.  This is so unlike me and I have no idea where it came from, except the possibility of my bipolar flaring up.  It doesn’t matter what the…

Confession…leaving the sins behind

I’ve got a guilty conscience.  I sometimes look back at my past wishing I hadn’t ‘t done one thing or another.  After confessing those sins, I should only be looking forward, not backward. Someone once said that when we get to heaven God shows a video of our lives.  My first reaction  was, “huh oh.”…

My secret for complete faith and trust in God?

For the longest time when asked just how did I get whole and complete with God…my answer was, “It just happened.”  Actually what I was really thinking was that I really didn’t know.  (By the way, the headline above was just a teaser because it’s not a secret.  Just being a little ornery.) I had…

How hard is it to believe?

As I think about Jesus’ resurrection I’m reminded just how grateful I am to understand why Jesus did what He did.  I also think about the apostles and the fear and confusion they must have been feeling. Their mentor, teacher, brother and leader has died and risen from the dead.  I wonder just how much…

A Very Blessed Easter to all!!!!

I love this day. Unlike Christmas, and all of the hustle and bustle, we get to concentrate on our Lord, on the holiest of holy days. On Good Friday, as I wrote 2 days ago, Jesus sufferred every physical pain imaginable. One thing I have to do is remind myself of the mental pain as…

My words

I don’t know how well this is blog is working. I’ve noticed the daily views have really dropped off. I also know that I was trying to be like Matthew Kelly of Dynamic Catholic. This was a huge mistake of mine and I accept complete responsibility. First, the daily views are insignificant to me. It’s…

Good Friday

Good Friday For Christians, there is not much to say. After being so humble at the last supper, evidenced by the washing of the feet, our Lord suffered so much pain on Good Friday. And we all know why. Over 40 lashes, throrns piercing His head, carrying of the cross and then the crucifixion. John…

The Devil Made Me Do It?

James 1:14Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. My favorite rock band is Dream Theater. Recently they released a song where the lyrics went, “I’m runing from the enemy inside.” When I told people that I could really relate to the song, they thought I was mental. What it…

Public Displays of Affection

Matthew 10:32 “Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.Some of my generation might remember the game show, “I’ve Got a Secret.” The celebrity panel was tasked with trying to figure out which of three guests was the actual person by asking questions. Basically two of…
