RANDOM

So I was finishing a run in the park and an old woman came over and struck up a conversation with me. I had noticed her and what I assume to be her daughter over by a tree a lap earlier. Now those who know me know that I am a magnet for random, and sometimes crazy people telling me there life story at any time in public. Mistakenly people have thought they knew me and from time to time I have been mistaken for Don Cheadle. I always go ahead and talk to the people just for the experience. I have noticed that a high percentage of the people who do just randomly talk to me are older. It makes me wonder is it that people these days don't have the same sense of community that used to exist were it was just a normal and friendly thing to strike up conversations with people. Could it be just something about me that makes older people want to talk to me. I have always felt like maybe I was supposed to be born in another time. Perhaps I remind them of that, i.e.. I have an old soul. Anyway I must say that I always love to talk to older people. I gain so much knowledge from the experience they impart on me, so please old people keep it coming. Crazy people though, maybe let up a little on talking with me in the line at Target. If you haven't heard that story from me you need to ask me about it one day. I think it will be the basis for a book in the future. As always please feel free to post and tell me what you think or share your own stories!

VISION 11/4/2020

Behold, I woke on Wednesday morning November 4, 2020. I was happy to be blessed by the Most High with another day. I headed out into the world and there was great sorrow for some and great joy for others. I had great joy because I knew how much grace had been shown to me by the Savior, and I thought maybe the others who were happy shared this same feeling and the ones who were sad were that way because they don't know the Savior. I found out that all of their feelings were based off the election of a new king, and nothing to do with blessings that they had received from their Heavenly Father.      I continued on until I came to a sight that amazed me. Their was a crowd of people that wanted to fight each other. They were evenly divided and some had various weapons and wore the armor of their chosen side. There was red and blue and letters and symbols like 'Q' and 'BLM'. None of them said anything that sounded like it came from the Holy Word, they quoted only from th

FAILURE (Personal)

Throughout my life I have had failures. Anyone that saw me try to play basketball, run track, and wrestle in high school can attest that my athletic career was a failure. I took test in school that I should have got an 'A' on if I had studied and applied myself, and the times I didn't prepare and didn't get an 'A' I consider it a failure. Even more so in the academic realm, I never finished my bachelor's degree in Engineering. Just years worth of credits sitting in limbo to remind me of my failure to finish when many people made sacrifices so I could achieve a higher education. As many know I have never been married and have no children, which I also consider to be a failure on my part. Most importantly, in my walk I have committed sins knowing that it separates my from my savior. Doing it in full knowledge of what Jesus did for me. I have been a failure at living the life that he wants me to live. I say these things to let you know that I understand failure

The Great Divide I

  I actually started on this post back in October 2020. It was all over the place, but I just recently looked at it and got it more focused.       So something has been on my heart for a while, and I have finally decided to write down a few words that will hopefully explain some things about my actions. First off let me state unequivocally that I believe in Matthew 5:43-45 (Love your enemies) and Matthew 22:37-40 (Love your neighbors). So if anyone ever needs help, be they stranger, family, friend, or even enemy, you have but to ask.       With that out of the way let me get to what this is about. I wrote a post called Fence Jumping a while back.  http://jmfkauthor.blogspot.com/2018/09/fence-jumping.html   Check it out if you get a chance. I tried back then to let people know some things that are going on. Tried to explain why I'm choosing not to be as social of a person these days. I get the sense however that either people don't care or I haven't withdrawn myself enough f
