  1. 8-02-13

    I'm noticing a pattern more and more:

    The more progress I make, the further out of my way I have to go to make further progress. The result of this is, it is progressively getting harder and harder for me to make progress.


    I'm attempting to learn more about Louisiana. Reading about a place just doesn't do what actually BEING there will do.

    Unfortunately, there is no way I can take a trip to Louisiana right now.
  2. 77. Retraction?

    With many leaders in the Body of Christ making statements in the news that is counter to the Word of God... and people are sitting back waiting for these leaders to "retract" what they say.

    Well, here is my thought about that as I just commented online in a discussion:

  5. I've been doing a lot of thought on doctrine lately...
