  • This is my journey (in real time).

    I told my employer that I'm moving, I sold my house, I moved into a small apartment, I move out next weekend.

    I don't have a job, I have no place to move into yet. I have no "security" right now. All I have are questions.

    But all of this has been an answer to my prayers. This about my faith and my faith story. I don't know where you are in your life, but right now (today) I'm in a mysterious place. It's crazy. I'm starting to shake, but I will not be moved. The Lord will bring me through this...and my family too (my wife and 2 children).

    Today I heard a song by The Postal Service, "A Brand New Colony" and it spoke to me. This is where the Lord is taking me and my family.

    "Start a brand new colony
    Where everything will change,
    We'll give ourselves new names (identities erased)
    The sun will heat the grounds
    Under our bare feet in this brand new colony
    Everything will change, oOo oOo..."
