While Jesus was carrying the cross, He fell. His flesh was weak after all the beatings. His humanity had limits. So does ours. That’s why we need God so desperately. I endured a difficult situation at work. It was a “toxic” work environment. Yelling, swearing, verbal abuse. I finally reached end of what I could … More Jesus fell
My original post about the Orphan Spirit is popular. I didn’t write most of the information there; I included articles by other authors and included their names and websites. I had two revelations this week that I will share. I find that other people go through similar trials. The first is from the book Complex … More The Orphan Spirit part 3
All the kids were so excited, Santa was sitting in a wagon pulled by a truck, escorted by the fire engines. It made me think: When was the last time I was that excited about anything? I really don’t recall. The closest was a few months ago, when my son got a new roommate who is a … More Santa was just in my neighborhood

While there is now much debate on what could have/should have/would have been done, I thought it might be a good … More My own personal crawl through depression vs. a broken leg.
Where to start? I guess the middle is as good a place as any. So my fiancé (now Mr. Porter) and I had to attend the pre-cana classes and get our certificate before we got married. I should mention here that I was off my regular anti-depressant medication. I was not on any medication, as … More A Night at the Psych Ward
Time itself is a strange concept. When we are enjoying ourselves, time seems to move quickly. When we are uncomforable, time seems to move slowly. When we are kids, time seems to pass slowly.
