  1. The War With Hannibal, Livy (book review)

    Why am I posting book reviews? Because reading books is time-consuming. No one wants to spend a month or two reading a lousy book. I'll offer here my "two cents" on whatever book I finish.

    The War With Hannibal, Livy

    Round two between Rome and Carthage. Titus Livius takes us through Punic War II which began with Hannibal storming Roman ally Saguntum and his daring trek across the Alps into Italy. I was looking forward to this book for a long time now, and I'm ...

  2. The Emptiness Within



    The Emptiness Within
    As we journey through this thing called life
    Our days are filled with joy and strife -
    With good, bad and sad times all without number,
    While deep within us there is a great hunger;
    A longing so strong; a consuming need -
    For there's something we need to be fully complete.

    So we search and we look in each cranny and nook;

  4. Sometimes

    by , Jan 21st 2009 at 02:10 PM (My small part in appreciating the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.)

  5. God's Big Toe

    When I stand before God, my head reaches the top of his big toe. Right below the toenail. Mt.Everest is but a ant hill next to the Almighty.
    After all, God placed the stars in the sky, and named them. Some stars are thousand times bigger than Earth. Like softballs, he juggles them. Like a child playing "Light Bright", he places them. Some blue, some red, some green and some white.
    His Throne is huge, it's a multi colored white. Sparkling like Diamonds, its quite blinding to ...
