Film – Day 101

Oh you beautiful black box, you pull my eyes toward you. Your static calls out to me in the night. The flashing images light up my eyes. I hear promises of much, yet I receive almost nothing. But your images become dull over time and I ask for more. I ask for flashier images and more disturbing images. I no longer am happy with a happy family and beavers. I want the dramatic. I want intensity. I want the grotesque. I ask for more cleavage and less honor. I beg of you to drag me through the mire. And then my flesh cries out “thank you.” So I turn it off. Then I resort to a “Christian” movie. I watch bad acting. I enjoy terrible scripting. I amuse myself by viewing badly constructed sets. My sense of beauty cries out in terror and looks for...

Get Started – Day 100

100 Days! *candles* I’ve made it 100 days. It’s not always easy but I’ve done it. It got me thinking. If you never start you can never finish. Many young guys are constantly stuck in planning mode. I’ll wait till everything is perfect and then I’ll start. To some extent you just need to start. Of course planning is great and all, but getting stuck in the planning stage is a killer. No matter how perfect your plan is you’re still going to have problems and failures. Might as well get them out of the way now instead of in neverland when you start. Of course don’t be stupid. Getting counsel is really important as well. But you can only use so much counsel, at some point you have to start. Picture of the day...

Reading – Day 99

Reading. It’s an area that many of us lack in. Or at least as guys. If we do get to a book it’s an easy book right before bed. But we need to continue to grow. Once we feel like we’ve reached a good place we tend to stagnate. Either become stagnate or grow. And I think reading is one wonderful way to grow. P.S. Sorry about the brief posts. Just too tired to write a long winded soliloquy. Picture of the Day...

Tired – Day 98

There’s something about getting to the end of the day and feeling tired and happy to have accomplished a lot. And kind of crazy. Bye. Picture of the Day #98:

Childlike Faith – Day 97

I love children. They have a faith that is amazing. They look up to their mommy and daddy and believe what they have to say. No questions. No asking for evidence. They just accept it as fact. But as they grow up, they no longer need help. They know it all. They’ve already seen a frog jump 50x it’s body length. They know that ants have 6 legs. They know the moon is a piece of rock. They know it hurts when they fall. They don’t need to trust anymore. Have you become this way with your faith? I hope not. “And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, ‚ÄúTruly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in...
