A hop of Faith and an End of an era

(My first Christmas with the Communications Bureau) Today marked the end of an era.  Sort of.  Well…not to sound too dramatic, but today was definitely an end. Since February 2010, I have worked in the Communications Bureau of the Salvation Army’s USA Southern Territorial Headquarters.  For the past three and a half  years, I have … Continue reading

Pre-Requisite: Breathing

Have you ever just felt restless? Like it was time to make a move?  Like there’s something in you that needs something different?  Let’s call it dissatisfaction in current circumstances. I’ve been feeling this way recently, and I’m not sure why, exactly.  But, being the over-analytical person I am, I have a few reasons. I … Continue reading

What’s in a Number?

A variance of the question Juliet asked on her balcony unknowingly to an eavesdropping Romeo.

American Idol

Idolatry is apparently a real problem in the bible…like actual worship of inanimate objects made from gold.  But there is also a theme of idolatry in the unfaithfulness of the Israelites.  I mean, basically the whole Old Testament is one big on-again-off-again relationship between God and His people.  It’s like the Israelites just never got … Continue reading

The Balance of Life. Are you Centered?

(**Repost.  From my tumblr. account on January 24th, 2011**) Rain.  It’s a beautiful thing.  It’s not only part of life, but it’s a welcome part, especially when water table levels are being threatened. Even in America, with all it’s sophisticated irrigation systems and water reserves and it’s pride in excess, succumbs to the effects of … Continue reading
