Slow To Speak

As I watch the firestorm roar its way through Facebook, my heart wrenches and I’m upset. But, I’m not upset for the reasons that you might think. The evidence is screaming at our faces. We have become a people who are not slow to speak.

Slow to speak

We let our words fall prey to the heat of our passions, and our reputations stand before the firing line of our own emotions. Continue reading

A Different Kind of Freedom

All over America there are fireworks crackling and fizzing in the sky. They are celebrating America’s freedom. The freedom that has been fought for with blood and sweat.

The hurting wife and the pain unveiled . . .

I’m going to be vulnerable here, and frankly, I’m a bit scared. However, I can’t stay silent anymore.

My heart is broken. Marriages are crumbling around me, and I so badly want to put up a wall to help fortify them. I know it isn’t new news that many marriages are suffering these days, but it’s still heartbreaking. I’m watching even Christian marriages wilt away, while others push through and suffer in silence.

There. It’s out. I said the “P” word. I called out the thing that is lurking in the shadows. Pornography has become this ravaging animal that viciously mauls everything in its path and leaves many wounded.
