If God is Good

If God is good, why is there suffering and pain in the world? Not to intentionally nose-dive deep into theological philosophies, but I believe there’s a balance between God’s sovereignty and the free will he has given to mankind.  Does God give mankind the freedom to choose their eternal destinies? Yes.  But at the sameContinue reading “If God is Good”

To a Politically-Torn World

In the past year, it seems like the world has become more polarized with itself. Even within families, differences have spread into insurmountable gaps that seem impossible to cross. Whether it’s discourse over the COVID-vaccine, the 2020 political election, the attack of the Capital, racial justice, climate change, or any other number of “hot topics”, it seemsContinue reading “To a Politically-Torn World”

The Honest Truth

It’s difficult to be honest. Whether it’s honest with ourselves or with other people, it involves opening our eyes and taking a good hard look to invoke positive change. Because when we refuse to see, or when we are in denial, that’s when we become stuck, and we can’t move forward. Not everyone likes beingContinue reading “The Honest Truth”

Our Only Hope

I’ve been watching a lot of Star Wars recently. You see, I grew up loving the old movies and the prequels. I remember going to the movie theatres to see Revenge of the Sith; it was the first movie I watched with a PG-13 rating. There are so many intense themes that reverberate through theContinue reading “Our Only Hope”

Epilogue

The hero has sacrificed himself to save the lives of many. Now, it is time to say goodbye to a beloved son and a trusted friend. The funeral music plays, the casket is opened…  And it’s empty.  Whether the “hero” is Captain America, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Aslan, or Jon Snow; our modern-day TV cultureContinue reading “Epilogue”

What is Truth?

Wrongly convicted, the defendant waits for his sentence to be passed. Death by electrocution. For a crime he did not commit. The end of the road is near, and the last chance of being freed has passed. His appeal had been rejected. The evidence against him was stacked too high, the prosecutor’s case too thick.Continue reading “What is Truth?”

Singing in the Rain

I like musicals.  My husband doesn’t quite understand why I know every word to Hamilton or light up like a Christmas tree when I sit down and watch Singing in the Rain or White Christmas. I will say, Cats is kind of weird looking back on it as an adult, Phantom of the Opera is kind of creepy and Pirates of Penzance isContinue reading “Singing in the Rain”
