Deitrick Haddon – Church On The Moon Now this is a trip.  Get inspired, motivated and meet one very sexy sounding vehicle.

Gateway Next – Look Up Who says you have to be a grownup to lead worship. These kids do a bang up job and the songs are cool too.

Well that’s a start.  I hope you enjoy listening.

Until Next Time




I guess y’all have wondered what happened to me.

Well since my last post, I came down with a bad case of Cellulitis.  My left leg was nice and red and swollen and I could not wear long pants because anything that touched my leg made me want to cry.

Next i completely forgot the zine.  Sorry Don and Lisa.  I have no excuse beyond general forgetfulness.

There was other stuff but i really don’t want to go there.

Let’s just say that the last weeks were rough and I am glad they are over.  Now to get my butt in gear and get back to work.



This happened quite a number of years ago. I was probably in my early 20’s.

I was the only guy going on a trip to Precept Ministries for a conference. Most of the people going were friends from church, but there were a few ladies going that I had not met. As we pulled into a parking lot at another church to pick up a couple more ladies, the driver asked me if I knew a certain Dr, (redacted).

Why I opened my mouth I will never know. But I did and boy did I ever. Without a hesitation, I began to let everyone know exactly what I thought of him. i told them he was mean, rude, obnoxious, had no bed side manner, and was always telling me to shut up, never listened to what was bothering me. He once left me in a examination room for 3 hours because he forgot I was there and went to the hospital to do rounds. He told me when I complained of stomach trouble that it was because my mom was crazy and I would never get better until she died or I moved out on my own.

I went on and on, and never noticed that some of the ladies were staring at me like I had grown a second head. Finally I stopped for breath and the driver said that the reason she asked was to find out if I knew his wife, who happened to now be sitting in the passenger seat just in front of me.

I was about ready to ask then to take me back home, because the idea of being around his wife for several days was more than I thought I could handle. Then she cleared her throat and looked at me. Smiling she said the last thing I expected. “You know, that sounds just like him” and she laughed.

I did go on the trip and had an awesome time, but I hope I never do anything that dumb again.

The Week That Was…Not Good

This last week was not good.  To start the week off, I woke up with a massive cold. Saying wake up wax an overstatement as I more or less slept through the first few days just being miserable.  Normally colds come fast and leave fast.  Not this one. It’s a week later and i still feel like a zombie some times.

I mean, I wouldn’t mind going to bed earlier, except I don’t get up earlier.  And the whole sleeping 10 or more hours gets old.

However, I am mostly back to normal (for me) and now I need to get ready for church.

Hopefully I will get back into the groove.



To be honest, I usually forget I even have a webcam.  it was a gift from a friend and I used it on and off for awhile and then mostly stopped.  Now I use it to talk to my god-niece.  However I found this app for Chrome that led me to the Webcam Toy.  Not sure if this site has a practical use, but it sure was fun to play with.  And now i have a bunch of pictures of me that look just plain awesomely weird.

Here’s a few for your enjoyment.



A few days ago I answered a question about what makes me cry.  This got me thinking and I remembered this song.  The first time I heard it I cried like I had not cried in ages.

This is such a lovely song.

Question. What would you do to help someone you love face a fear?

Just curious.




A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all Circumstances, said: My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!

One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty losing a finger. Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved,
the nobleman said

“Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.”

The slave replied: “My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows the “why” of all these things. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!”

Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.

Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices. at the altar, ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released.

According to them, he was not so complete to be offered to the gods.

Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave that he received very affectionately.

“My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a question: if God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?”

“My King, if I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you, because I have no missing finger, therefore, remember everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong.”

Often we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.

Screen Shot of Classic boardENTANGLEMENT

Entanglement – by Gopherwood Studios.

Found this game about a month ago and have played it daily since.  I even sprung for the couple bucks for a premium account to get the extra boards.

The idea is elegantly simple and complex.  When you start you are met by  serene setting and oriental style music.  The board for the main game is a series of 6 sided shapes with a series of lines crossing them in different patterns.  You rotate the shapes to connect and create lines from the middle around the board.  You keep going until you hit the edge or the center tile.  Along the way you create longer and trickier lines.  You can increase the fun by playing against up to 5 opponents in hot seat.

The additional board consist of:

  • Sakura Grove – an unlimited board with limited tiles. You gain extra points for passing through the middle time and extra tiles by passing through the trees around the board.
  • Hanna Blossom – similar to the classic board but much bigger and a trickier shape.
  • Lotus Leaf – a small board that starts in the corner instead of the center.
  • There is also a daily challenge which takes one of the boards and sets a goal to beat.

The only downside is there is no online multiplayer option.

So go get Entangled and you’ll never have more fun making something a tangle.



Here we go again.

For years I have tried (and failed) as a blogger.  I’ve just never had much to say and been brave enough to say it.

NOW I think I am ready to try again.

I’ve been more comfortable writing lately,  And I have been doing more serious hunting around the net for stuff that I enjoy, find interesting, moving or just plain weird.  Andy anyone who knows me, knows I love to share, so instead of randomly blasting my email contacts with a half dozen or more links, I will share many of them here for everyone to enjoy.

So join me on this fascinating ride I call life.  Who knows where we will end up and how much the bail will cost. LOL
