Beyond

When I was very young, I wanted to be an artist. I loved drawing and painting. I did finally become a professional artist and eventually became interested in animation. I have lots of story ideas. This is one of them.  The opening scene is a sunny day at Rodin’s, “The Thinker”. The camera focus begins… Continue reading Beyond

God Package

I was introduced to Christianity at an early age. I was a typical wacky kid with a wild imagination. While I was growing up, I maintained God’s image from the seed in my little child’s brain as a beautiful, older than anybody, white haired, white robed, bearded, distant, brightly glowing super Man with a tall staff… Continue reading God Package

Help

A librarian’s life is a humble life and all about helping others. So should ours be. But it seems the Devil is taking over these days. Trying to pummel the humble helpers into the ground. It has always seemed to me that the Devil is in need of restraint. Today’s counter culture activity is just… Continue reading Help

We frequently wing it when it comes right down to it. Discovery is inspiration for the wandering soul. Not so with… Continue reading Death

The Twig

Is God real? At first, God doesn’t speak or show Himself in a clear and precise way so we have to figure out on our own whether He is real. We figure this out from living and thinking about what it means to be alive. And studying the natural world. If we’re enlighteningly fortunate, we… Continue reading The Twig

God

God wants a personal relationship with each one of us.  Private and personal because we each have a unique mind and spirit. But we have the potential to be of the same heart. He created each one of us with a purpose. We learn what that purpose is, usually over some time period. And that… Continue reading God

Guns

Why are some folks empowering criminals? That’s irrational. Criminals are dangerous and destructive. Social misfits. Doesn’t everyone know that? They do evil things to others. Criminals hurt others. Many criminals cannot be rehabilitated and giving them freedom from deterrents gives them more power to do evil. Why do I feel the need to spell out… Continue reading Guns
