I love Jesus, I love my family, and I love my friends. I've spent my life pursuing ways to use my talents and gifts in ways that glorify God, support my family, and help my friends.

Grace of the Embrace

I understand that in some circles, Mumford and Sons has become too mainstream to be cool anymore, but I still enjoy their music.  On their album, Sigh No More, they released a song called, Roll Away Your Stone.  The song has overt Prodigal Son overtones, and that doesn’t surprise me since Marcus Mumford’s parents were leaders in the Vineyard Church in Great Britain….

Zeal For Winning

Everyone likes winning. I’ve never met someone who said they like losing. At a minimum, victory puts a smile on the face of the victor. The whole reason the NFL had to invent the excessive celebration penalty is because the players’ celebrations in the end-zone were delaying the game, and maybe even bordering unsportsmanlike behavior.  Everyone likes winning. There’s everyone,…

Who’s the Greatest?

Muhammad Ali referred to himself as the greatest fighter of all time.  Some might count it as braggadocio, but few men matched his prowess as a boxer.

Retiring Political Commentary

You may consider this my retirement from political commentary. No one has shamed me into this. No one has made me feel unequal to the task. I definitely have political opinions and I think they’re good ones, but I will no longer be blogging about them. Let me explain myself, and then I’ll bid you good night. I’ve never, ever, ever…

Trump Day is Nigh

Inauguration day, January 20, will be here in a couple of days.  There’s a few thoughts I have going through my head that I want to share with you here as a matter of public record.  I’ve not been shy about my dislike of Donald Trump as President.  I’m not here to rehash everything that I’ve already said.  A Trump…

Thoughts for MLK Day

Once again, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day has come around. Today, my mind has looked back on my experiences growing up. I’m white, and the truth is since I left Mississippi, I have lived in predominantly white communities. And when I say predominantly I mean 90% plus white majority.  I didn’t plan it that way, it’s just the direction the Lord has taken…
