I have some mixed emotions after realizing last night there was all this news discussion based on a newspaper in NY that quoted Republicans about their thoughts and prayers. I won’t even quote the headline because of its intent. I’m not going to focus on the content of the story because we are not going to have a political debate here. This has sparked a debate in my head for which you have the pleasure, or regret, of reading. ha…

I want to walk through a thought process here and don’t want you to jump to any conclusions by the first few paragraphs of this post. The end result of this post will probably surprise you so stay with it. I’ve tried to keep an open mind with this subject and will provide my input as a US citizen and then as a Christian. Gun violence is all over the news. Murder rates are rising in many US cities. The right…

I will miss going to the mountains in the fall to see the change in the colors of the leaves on the trees. I will miss that about the Southern portion of the United States. Being in Mexico, there is not a lot of plush landscape even in the mountain areas where I live. The area where I live doesn’t greatly fluctuate in temperature so the seasons are not as obvious, visually. But in the South Carolina and North Carolina mountains, the scenery is beautiful…

Recent events in the US has many people on the edge of their seats. I have never seen emotions so high as they have been this year. Particularly, racism and the recent ruling by the US Supreme Court on same sex marriages. I know the media feeds a lot of this emotional stuff to us because it creates advertising revenue by more visits to their articles. Meanwhile, the TPP has been going on under the radar and yes you should be…

Thankfully, I don’t watch the “news” while on vacation. I see a lot of FB posts about Ferguson. It actually made me get off FB last night. I am not surprised at violence. I am not surprised by injustice. These are things that people around the world struggle with every day. Everyone outside the process has an opinion they think it is right. If we were honest with ourselves, most of what we think about the Ferguson situation is controlled…

Racism is truly disgusting and appalling. When we hear someone say racist things, most of us get angry inside. It’s natural to think that way for me, but it wasn’t always so. Until I saw what a lack of love actually does to people, I didn’t understand. My mom and dad did not raise me to think bigoted or racist, which I am forever grateful. However, the influence and constant surroundings of where I lived brought on a subconscious that leaned…

This is what happens to an organization that does not understand the market and does not change with the times. People still like movies, but they obviously don’t need to go to a store to get it nor wait to receive them in the mail. Most people download movies or rent them online through Netflix, AppleTV, Amazon, and more. It could be said the same thing for any ministry/church out there. People still love the gospel message. However, if we…

A 23-year-old, Eric Rivera Jr., was convicted of second-degree murder today in the 2007 slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor, who was shot outside his own bedroom after witnesses said he confronted young men who had broken into his home looking for money. When Sean Taylor died, many people said it was because of his past. Others felt he was still up to no good. Many reporters quickly made note that he was an aggressive player on the field…
