Ramblings

Greetings. For those who may be visiting here the first time, this blog was created for the purpose of providing another possible source of inspiration for people who may find something, anything, that they might find useful in their own daily lives. It is my hope that more people join and, more importantly, be willing to come forth with their own personal stories and experiences that may be an inspiration to others. It’s been said that “God works in mysterious ways” and I’m a firm believer in that phrase. Much of what He has done for me in my life over the past few years continues to amaze me. I’ve spoken often in the past that things, good things, seem to “just happen” in my life for reasons that are still a little unclear to me. This “spiritual awakening”, if you will, is something that began over two years ago and continues to grow brighter each day. I take great comfort in the strength and inspiration God has bestowed upon me during this time and I’m truly humbled by His presence in my life.

Those who know me well though, know I’m not one of those who thump a bible over someone else’s head. That’s not my style, and though I’m not fully aware of it when it does happen, I know without a doubt the Holy Spirit is working through me in ways I continue to discover on a daily basis. It is my sincere hope then that what you read you do with an open heart and mind. Doing so will be your best method of hearing the messages I try to convey with my own experiences, thoughts, and feelings.

REMEMBER, although I am just one man, I am a man who has chosen to take what some would see as tragic events in life and turn them into something of greater and positive use to myself, my family, and my fellow man. More importantly, I have experienced a number of positive events over the course of this life that far outweigh any of the negatives, and I am convinced this same attitude can be taken by anyone. Taken together, all these events and experiences are merely stepping stones to a greater understanding of this journey we call LIFE. Above all, I am a firm believer in the power of positive thinking and an unwillingness to ever give up on anyone or anything in life. Never say never!

  1. I still go back to this post and it is very uplifting. I like the visual of turning wheelbarrows full of thistles over and rolling them back to reveal wildflowers. Everything comes up daisies when you think in a positive light. Right now, that is often hard to understand, but your writing gives me a lot of hope. There are addictions and chains and in this world we all have trouble…but take heart every day that someone gave it all for you, for us all. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thank you for your gracious comment. I'd be curious to know who you are but, as I've mentioned before, anonymous comments and thoughts are always welcome.

    Thanks again!
