Perfect

When I was a child I thought I was perfect. But eventually, I learned to think like an adult. I discovered that achieving perfection is impossible.  Now I’m old and I am beginning to think like a child again. Sure I know I can’t DO anything perfect, but I’m realizing that God made ME perfect…… Continue reading Perfect

Present

“On the threshold of a dream…” Sometimes God’s Spirit wants to hear from me… “What lesson have you learned, Ed?”  You’ve heard the expression, “Slow as Christmas“? That’s me! God’s not ever looking for a quick answer. He’s very patient. He’s SUPERNATURALLY patient. I wish I had some of His patience. I do have a… Continue reading Present

Santa

… for ages 12 and up Santa is humankind’s birthday celebration analogy for Jesus Christ. To celebrate Jesus’s birthday, we project ourselves onto Santa and we project Santa onto Christ’s spirit. Over the years, society has mostly corrupted that beautiful analogy. Today Santa is largely idolized as a profit maker for us to gain benefits… Continue reading Santa

Visitors

1. How should I approach a stranger? 2. How should I react to a stranger when I’m approached? I ask myself those questions all the while I’m working on Ed’s Art Net. I’m always hoping for a really good outcome! I’m mostly satisfied with my website approach but I haven’t received a whole lot of… Continue reading Visitors

Truth is the MOST important ingredient of Ed’s Art Net… Heck, the whole Universe! I don’t struggle with truth but I struggle with fluid and uncluttered thinking when writing sometimes. It’s a gene thing but it’s okay! I think that I’m getting better at writing and I’m feeling better mentally these days. Probably because I… Continue reading Sean of the South

Death

As far as I know, nothing is as inevitably constant as death. We cannot bank with any assurance on any of “life’s” adventures. Most often we haven’t a clue what’s around the next corner. We frequently wing it when it comes right down to it. Discovery is inspiration for the wandering soul. Not so with… Continue reading Death

Slow

I picked up a snake yesterday and carried it away from my daughter’s garage. I placed it gently in the leaves next to the parking pad of her driveway. It was a small harmless rat snake.  This wasn’t my first encounter with a snake. I’ve dispatched a few in my day. I still have some… Continue reading Slow

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. If we’re fortunate, we begin to see God everywhere in… 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.  He created us with a purpose. We learn what that purpose is, usually over some time period. If we don’t relate to God or only relate to God while with others and not in private,… Continue reading God
