If you are like me, sometimes when you read the lives of the saints you shake your head and think, “I could never do anything like that.” Many endured horrible tortures to the point of death because they refused to deny Christ. Others denied themselves food, clothing, and shelter in ways that seem beyond the […]

Munch on!

It was a Sunday evening when I innocuously put a wrong step on the stairs while going out of the building where I stay. I was writhing in pain as I sat down on the stairs-thrown completely off-guard. Well, the security guard thankfully noticed and came in running.  Looking at my leg which was perhaps swelling at a rate higher […]

Heart-broken words, from a grieving mother. “My son had a heart of gold for everybody, his family, his friends,” she said through tears. “He’s not in no gang, he wasn’t in the streets stealing, he went to work everyday.” And words from a tiny nephew, too small to fully understand. “He used to stay up all night with me, we were watching movies.” Both mourning “Niko” Poland, shot and killed inside this home, near Gettysburg and Fresno streets, around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, surrounded by dozens. The crowds there, to celebrate his birthday. The suspected shooter, 16-years-old. Poland’s sister Amanda, shocked. “Very gentle, very gentle,” Amanda telling us. “Big old teddy bear. “Loves all of us, these babies; he’s been there since I was pregnant.” Police say five Bulldog gang members showed up, left, then came back five to 10 minutes later. The shooter, firing his gun into the ceiling. Poland, tried to wrestle the gun away. “At some point, the suspect was able to pull away from Poland, while still armed with that handgun, and fired rounds at Poland,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Sunday. Poland’s family says, he didn’t even know his killer. “They came with somebody that my brother knew, that’s kind of where we’re at with that,” Amanda said. Monday night, a crowd gathering on the front lawn of that home. Some holding candles, silently paying respects. His family, hopes the shooter, also pays. “He was good to everybody, there wasn’t anybody that he came across in his life, that he wouldn’t help or do anything for,” the victim’s mother said. “So whatever he got coming to him, so be it.”

(A Father’s Day Tribute) Having people to raise us and call us their children is a blessing from the Lord. Not all people get to experience the love of a father and mother; some people came from a broken family, while others have abusive parents. Taking time to be thankful of the small things in […]

In 2 Samuel, Chapter 11, records the account of King David’s affair. I read this chapter this morning, after I started to pose a question on Facebook… “Why do we put our sins on display and say we’re only human, and use our faulty humanity as an excuse to treat others in a worldly fashion […]

Memoirs of a Mountain Goat

I rarely travel to the same place twice. This is likely in part because I’m often heading to places that are far enough away that a trip back is challenging to make happen on a recurring basis, but more so, I generally operate with the feeling that there are so many stunning places to visit […]

2019 Traveling Normandy

Day 1 of our Summer Europe trip begins in New Jersey with a bike ride, spans a redeye flight to Paris, then does a drive by of the Eiffel Tower, Napoleon’s Grave, the Seine, the Louvre, then a subway to the Airbnb which gave way to a nap, a scrumptious dinner, a nice walk in the park, and an amazing dessert. Day 1 was a heck of a way to kick off the family summer vacation.

The Black Notes

I failed to #nofap after 2 days of ‘staying strong’. This was because honestly I was not feeling it and it was a Sunday where I felt relaxed and let it go. Actually it was because of Instagram which was a trigger point for me. Seeing the insta thots was just enough to trigger a […]

This vegan berry French toast casserole is a perfect illustration of the timeless cooking rule that simpler is better. I learn this again and again and again in my life as a home cook. Sure, there are those moments when an extra step or two, a longer process, a specialty ingredient, or an added seasoning […]
