As I observe the world around me, I've noticed humanity's disregard for our fellowmen. It never fails to amaze me just how much we "care". We've become so caught up in self that we don't even notice those suffering right beside us. It's all about me, what I want, what I can do, how I…

The Convenience Store God

For the Lonely Nights

...I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5 KJV) I'll share with you a secret. The smile many persons see on my face is forced most of the times. At this point you may be asking, "But why?" You see something happened a few years back and the reality hit that while many…
