I have several days to go before the end of my career. While I am at peace in the Lord, my human side is trying hard to be afraid. My career is how I have identified for over fifteen years.

Alone in my prayer closet, under-caffeinated and overly anxious, I spilled my guts on the floor in desperation for God to clean up the mess. Nothing was particularly wrong, except that I… Continue reading What if you could live just for today?
“Happy are those who love you, and happy are those who rejoice in your peace.

“Work is Prayer too.” (Thank you Br Andrew Efo) He is the man without property or home who has no place to lay his head (Mt.8:19, Lk 9:58, From Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict XVI, which I highly reccommend) Have you found Jesus yet, Gump?
