Plans and Accommodations

Today was one of those days. You know the kind: you get up, optimism abounds because the world really is your oyster, and you like it raw with all the liqour from the half-shell.  Then soon enough the reality sets in and it becomes very obvious that this particular oyster was not quite as choice […]

Dying to Self

Since becoming engaged to marry I have begun to learn some things about life and who I am that I don’t think I ever would have learned otherwise.  There is a part of me that is more selfish than I would have ever cared to admit.  Now, however, I am forced to confront this in […]

A New Law

With a thanks to MTH, I recently downloaded an album entitled Mockingbird, by Derek Webb. You can get it here. Having known Derek for several years while he was with Caedmon’s Call, I was excited for him when he went out on his own. He has already put out quite a bit of work, and […]
