Ask you fool!

“Ask, and it will be given to you; search and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.” Luke 11:9 My knees were weak, my palms were sweaty;  pretty sure there was something on my sweater already… Mom’s spaghetti? I was nervous. But, on the surface, I looked calm and ready…* not really… I was a total WRECK! That was me about 13 years ago. Flummoxed. This problem with seemingly no solution. See, I met a girl. A fantastic girl. The girl of my dreams in fact, and we had both been at the same...

“Snarled & Snagged”

“14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.” 16 As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” 18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19 As he went a little farther, he saw James...

Time And Relative Dimension In Space (T.A.R.D.I.S.)

One of my favorite guilty-pleasure TV shows of all time is the cheesy British sci-if phenomenon Doctor Who. I am going to tell you what I told my wife when she first started watching it with me: “Don’t look for it to make any sense… that just ruins it.” The series started way back, not much after TV itself became a thing. It’s a show about a time-traveling alien from a race called “The Time Lords;” he travels through time and space having adventures with different companions. Originally it was supposed to be an educational show, the kind that...
