Diary of the Prodigal Son

Day 1Dear Diary,You know I am not exactly sure who I am writing to. I think I want to talk with God, but are you listening? Why would you listen to me? Does it matter? Am I writing to myself? From my lower self to my higher self, to my guardian angel? Does it matter

Judge not …

When you take just part of a sentence from the Bible, you almost always miss the point. The message was “Judge not lest ye be judged likewise”. If you don’t understand that one, Jesus followed up in the very next sentence, “Why try to pull a speck from your neighbors eye when you have a

you aren’t free, but you could be

There is a scene in a movie with Jesus and Mary Magdalen. She tells Jesus she is free because she is not tied to any man. She is not a piece of property; she is her own woman. A claim many people would make today. But, Jesus answers her, “You aren’t free, but you could

There is a still more excellent way

There is a still more excellent way. St. Paul in 1 Corinthians 12 and 13, points out that there are many different kinds of gifts, but there is a still more excellent way. This makes me wonder how many times we have things in our life that are seemingly good, and we stop there. Not

Truth vs lies

How do you know the truth when you hear it? It brings you peace. In my previous post, I suggested starting your day with one true sentence. A suggestion from Ernest Hemingway. So I wondered what would happen if you did (if I did) the opposite. And i looked back upon a crappy day, an
