“To live by grace means to acknowledge my whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting my shadow side I learn who I am and what God's grace means.”
― Brennan Manning

I'm sorry I've been away for a while. Happy to see that there is still a strong community of people here.

I was in a bad mood until I listened to a little bit of Hobo Johnson; that sure cheered me up.

Y'all, The Matrix came out in 1999. That's 20 freaking years ago! I feel so old!

I was just passive-aggressively referred to as an "educator" who attempts to indoctrinate children with the Liberal agenda.

Must be doing something right.

Just saw a post that said "Marriage doesn't take two people; it takes three. You cannot have a good marriage if God is not at the center of it."

It took every ounce of self-control I had not to respond with, "But God isn't a person." The only reason I didn't is because the lady who posted it is elderly and really very sweet.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's breakdown in 50/50 gets me every time. I would say it's one of the most impactful scenes in cinematic history, along with Paul Dano's meltdown in Little Miss Sunshine.

My buddy Tony Harrah is getting some much-earned recognition for his amazing talent. Check him out if you dig a bluesy Americana sound:

This is quite delightful:

Watch "Samm Henshaw - Church (Official Video) ft. EARTHGANG" on YouTube

I was already in love with Mary J. Blige, but her performance in Mudbound took that love to a whole new level.

Just finished watching Roma. Such a beautiful, immersive, and heartbreaking film.

I'll try to ask this without sounding like a fool. I'm realizing my entertainment choices (books, movies, music, TV, etc.) have been very... white. What are your recommendations for more diverse choices?

Update on my mother-in-law:

She is awaiting surgery. After surgery, she will need to stay down here in a physical rehabilitation center for 7-10 days to receive physical therapy before she can go home.

This is inexcusable. Jesus said "So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me."
Matthew 18:4‭-‬5 NLT

My mother-in-law fell last night and broke her hip. She's on vacation with us, and around midnight she fell out of her bed onto her hip. She wanted us to help her up, but the pain was so bad we decided not to move her. She agreed to let us call 911, and now she's in the hospital waiting to see the orthopedic surgeon. She will need surgery. My heart broke for her when she looked at us and said, "Well, this has been a hell of a vacation." 😞

Just saw "Moonlight" for the first time; what a beautiful film.

Come Sunday on Netflix is probably something this community would really appreciate.
