Grumpy Cat Time: It's Time to Review Facebook Tagging Etiquette

03/22/2015 08:47 PM

Let me quickly apologize.  The grumpy cat is coming out a little bit, here.  :P

I'd like to take a moment to discuss proper Facebook tagging etiquette, and explain 1) why it's important to me, and 2) why I filter your tags in my posts or photos, and what you tag me in, and ignore probably 60% of them.   

My Prayer Today

08/03/2014 08:26 PM Would we pursue God differently if we knew we couldn’t see Him when we die?  We know and preach that we can worship God forever in the New Jerusalem – what most people think of as simply “heaven.”  But what if that wasn’t the case?  What if everything we will ever say to God, we have to say now… everything we ever do for God, we have to do now – in this life?...

What is the Purpose of Prayer...?

05/10/2014 05:34 PM — I saw a concerned post from someone on the Internet the other day that was asking about prayer.  Their question was, "What is the purpose of prayer, if God is going to do what He wants to do anyway?"  Obviously this person had been taught to believe or had experiences that indicated to them that prayer was not full of purpose.  I've learned a decent amount of things from studying the scriptures, and having Godly leaders and teachers in my life who are dedicated to God and prayer. Hoping to help someone who's feeling like God doesn't care what they think - or that God has no purpose for them on earth. So I thought I'd record some of my thoughts on how God considers our will and purpose, including prayer, and how God turns anything but a deaf ear!

Thoughts on Windows 8 RTM Final Version

08/17/2012 06:16 AM — Roughly ten days ago, I installed the leaked RTM (Released to Manufacturing) build of Microsoft Windows 8 Pro on my primary desktop computer.  I gave it ten days to win me over, or to make me hate it.  Here are my thoughts...

There is a Spirit in Man - the Breath of the Almighty

02/18/2012 04:35 AM — David said in the Psalms, "What is man, that You are mindful of him; the son of man, that You visit him?"  (Psalm 8:4)  He was asking the LORD this question.  But the answer is...

The Bible: Reasons for the Rules

02/13/2012 03:36 AM — Some people have asked me recently about "the rules" the Bible has, and why they're important.  Some people also get to thinking that following them is the only way to enter into eternal life in God's heaven.  The problem with that idea is that if it were true, none of us would be!

Save the Internet

11/27/2011 04:54 PM — The Internet is under attack.  Here's why, and what you can do to save it.  Save the Internet.

My Gift to You

09/27/2011 04:43 AM — When I was younger, I'd often ask You for this or for that... to do this or to do that.  When I couldn't have it (or simply couldn't have it yet) I'd ask You to let me know.  I'm older now, though not much.  And I've learned a few things, though I have much to learn.  I've grown up under Your leadership and guidance, Your merciful hand of friendship and grace, Your watchful eye and Your unfailing love for 25 years... and only now have I realized that in asking to know, I was denying You the only thing I have that is truly mine -- the only thing I can give You that isn't already Yours....

Around the World - Video from the International Space Station

09/20/2011 01:27 PM DailyMail.co.uk. along with just about everybody else (including me, now!) has a very cool article with photos and video from the International Space Station travelling around the earth. I thought this was just about one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.
