The Christian Life 2020: Only Quality People


I value people. I value only quality people, as Les Brown likes to say. I value good, honest, moral characters that won't betray you in their hearts, minds or out loud when they catch a chance. These days this is a rare commodity to find in anyone. It seems the demon of betrayal, backbiting, hypocrisy, … Continue reading The Christian Life 2020: Only Quality People

The Christian Life 2020: Sleepless in Baltimore


There is nothing that can be substituted for sleep. Over these last couple of days, it has been difficult to get my seven to eight hours of sleep. I have been sleepless in Baltimore.

The Christian Life 2020: Trying to Exhale, But the Air is Toxic


Its time to exhale, but the air is toxic. Every time, I try to breathe and coexist in the environment, the air around me becomes polluted. Have you ever felt like that?

The Christian Life 2020: Take The Risk, God Defends You


In life, there is always risk. Every decision we make, we won't know the outcome.

The Christian Life 2020: Struggle Builds Spiritual Muscles


Change is never easy. It forces you to leave what you know, to leave what is comfortable. It forces you to extend your faith and trust God, regardless of what may come.

The Christian Life 2020: Breaking the Silence


It's time. I have been silent long enough. It's been many months since I last took the time to truly sit and write about my Christian experience. I need to write. Writing is cathartic.
