The Case for Being a Man.

April 19, 2014

It’s so hard to be a man, even, a man who loves his own wife more than himself.
Too many things are destructive and harmful for my health.

Why is the call of being a father feel so burdensome at times?
All these things on the world wide web, pulling for my allegiance and my mind.

Even a simple quiet devotion time can so easily become a self-destructive binge.
The computer or the smart phone all blinking for my eyes, making my doors come unhinged.

Focusing on the taste of my beer,
rather than thinking and praying about the things I fear.

Some of those very fears have become my own bone-crushing reality.
My life so close to ruin at times, too near to coming untied actually.

What would I do without the redeeming power of the love of the Father?
Without him, my life would be nothing but simple fodder.

It’s time to open my eyes, turn on the lights and let this truth spur me on.
To live my life out of this truth, that my life is worth way more than I let on.

The time is now, the consequences of not acting are life changing.
The action is needed right here and right now, it’s about time for some rearranging.

I have a second, a third, and even a fourth chance to make this all right.
To come to grips with the notion that my marriage and my kids are damn worth the fight.life-long-quotes

Define This Existence

August 10, 2013

Finite!
What does this really mean?
We are all just finite beings, we only have a limited nature of existence.
We are circumscribed!
We are confined!
We are restricted!
We are determinate!
We are decided!
We are fixed, exact, and precise!
We are fathomable!
We are measurable!
We are numerable!
We are created beings, at the mercy of the hand of our architect. We are not in control of our existence. We may feel that we are in control of these things but we are not, we cannot determine our outcomes. We live on a shallow plain in our humanness. This reality is quite, this reality is dark, this reality is depressing. But, only if we do not plug our lives into the timeline of our creator. Then, and only then we will start to see the resilience, and the resemblance we have in common with this brilliant being. This creator who was before all things, and in all things, and holds together all things. To understand this is to start to grasp the importance and the magnitude of not only being created beings, but that we are created in the exact likeness of the all seeing, all knowing, all existing father of this universe. Without this understanding we live in the shallows, we only live on the surface of this expanse existence. Once we plug in to the meaning of life, our Creator God, real meaning of life; we will begin to see who we really are.
We are boundless!
We are dateless!
We are illimitable!
We are infinite!
We are limitless!
We are unbounded!
We are unlimited!
We are everlasting!
We are inexhaustable!
We are endless!
And so is he!!!!

Movember or more fitting, Beardvember.

November 2, 2010

Hey guys,
 
Some of you I haven’t talked to in ages but I wanted to inform as many people as I knew about this.
 
This Movember or Bearvember as I like to call it I’ve decided to donate my face to raising awareness about cancers that affect men.  My commitment is the continued growth of a moustache and beard for the entire month of Movember, and for the rest of my life which I know has and will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.

I’m doing this because:

·     1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime

·     1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime

This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to support the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.  To help, you can either:

–  Click this link http://us.movember.com/mospace/970352/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account
–  Write a check payable to Movember, referencing my name or Registration Number 970352 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726
 
The money raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others, through the world’s most promising prostate cancer research and LIVESTRONG’s programs that support young adults and their families battling and surviving cancer. You can also visit the above link to join my team as well to help support this innitiative.

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please visit

Thank you.
