Play-Doh 2

He works in mysterious ways. As if to answer the questions in the nightmares I wrote about on Monday, today I learned a major truth about one relationship I addressed. Those nightmares were no accident. They opened up the doors to answers I’ve spent six months hoping for. Now most of the red flags make sense. (more…)

Play-Doh

No! No! I jumped onto the next log dammed across the murky water, then onto a piece of driftwood. The grey sky arced overhead like a bird of prey with its wings unfurled as I jumped towards shore.

Why I hadn’t fallen into the pond yet I didn’t know, because that’s where they were with their scuba equipment clamped onto their faces. They thought they’d pull me in, but I narrowly missed their grasp.

Why were they trying to hurt me? I didn’t do anything to them. As a matter a fact, they’d forced me into this meeting. Were they trying to do serious harm, or just scare me? (more…)

Venn Diagram

Sin is the monster we love to deny. It can stalk us, bite a slice out of our lives, return again and bite again, and even as we bleed and hobble, we prefer to believe nothing has happened. That makes sin the perfect monster, a maneater that blinds and numbs its victims, convincing them that nothing is wrong and there is no need to flee, and then consumes them at its leisure…

While surfing the web for something unrelated, I came across a Venn Diagram on Despair.com that shows ADHD, stalking, and narcissism overlapping with Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, and Tweetstalk in-between. I’ve been guffawing about it ever since, but that reminded me of another subject I’ve wanted to toss into the public arena. (more…)
