INSOMNIA 1




Sometimes you forget things from your past and how much they affected you. Then one night you can't sleep because that memory lingers and plays in your mind. So here is the first of three post about an incident in my past. Its personal reflections that are told in an intentionally vague way to keep me out of trouble on the Internet. Some will know details of the story from private conversations, but no one has probably heard me express the impact it has had on me. So here is part one.


     INSOMNIA I


     It was an ordinary day. I thought I was finished, another job well done, lets hit the showers, drinks on me. Then out of nowhere it almost hit me, she almost hit me, literally. Seconds moved at the speed of light. Thoughts were had, decisions made, blink of an eye and it was over. I could have died, she could have killed, she could have died, I could have killed. She could have killed the bystanders around me, I could have killed the innocents with her. Something more than me intervened that day, and by grace no life was lost.
     So many years later and I can't sleep tonight because I have no closure. My memory is not solid fact, but flashbacks and screams of emotions. History paints a different picture of the experience, and I am left to wonder. Why did it even happen?




**Part II tomorrow

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
