Prodigal

As I left another day's work, I quickly snapped this photo. So beautiful, yet so tormented. A bit like every human being I've ever met. All fighting our own inner demons on some level. https://youtu.be/EI5jsa3D5xo I love this song for the hope it provides to people who (like me) once deviated from their path. I … Continue reading Prodigal

Thanks to the Scruffyvicar for this one, a good reminder of how our actions can have a ripple effect.

I used like the Star-fish story, you probably know the one? It is of a man seeing another man on beach which is covered in starfish drying out and dying in the heat of the sun. The man is throwing starfish into the sea. The other man laughs at this fellow, and says to him “there are thousands of star fish you can’t make difference to them all!” To which the guy replied by picking up another starfish and threw it into the sea saying “well, it made a difference to that one!”

The power of words.

When I was a child, asking "do you promise" or saying "I promise" made you really consider and take seriously your words. It gave the person you were saying it to assurance that you would do as you said. But thinking back, it meant that a simple yes or no had less meaning when not … Continue reading The power of words.

What does “follow me” mean to you?

What does it mean to follow? We follow bloggers on wordpress. We follow people on instagram. We follow pages on Facebook. In the real world outside social media following someone is downright creepy and at times illegal these days. But on these platforms we encourage it and welcome followers with open arms!

I once heard a man tell his son in the barbershop, “Son, you aren’t old enough to ‘cuss’. When are you old enough to cuss?

America is obsessed with profanity. The enemy has convinced people it makes…

Words more powerful…

Jokes more funny…

Arguments more convincing…

Authority more authoritative…

Good parents will allow coaches to ‘cuss’ their children to ‘get the best out of them’.

People who deal with those who use profanity claim you have to ‘speak their language’ to get through to them.


Our movies, television shows, comedians, songs and sometimes even those in authority reinforce a culture of profanity.


God said very clearly that we are to not allow corrupt, unwholesome, coarse language come from our mouths…

Ephesians 4:29  (NKJV)

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
