    YSU Bound In January!

    Well originally I was hoping to attend a college much closer to home and continue my education. However I discovered that a Forensic degree simply was not offered at all colleges. So off to YSU to finish my schooling. I went for my campus visit yesterday and got a good tour of a...

    Not The School I Was Planning On Transferring To

    Well thankfully I listen to good advice from people who care about me. My son's girlfriend (who has her Master's degree) told me to not wait to begin my process of transferring colleges. So yesterday I called 2 local colleges; Kent State and Akron University only to find out...

    Ohwow! I had a magnificent meditational

    session; and from a very deep tranquil state came a profound, ecstatic experience that affected all my senses. This seems like a time of going through a stage of major discernment. A time to transform own distortions and distress into grace; face the resistance and emotions we...

    There Are No Coincidences

    Today I had an appointment with a careers consultant. The date had been set quite a while ago and my concern had become increasingly important, so I was quite anticipant about how it would go. I was greeted by a sympathetic looking woman with a big round face and soft friendly...

    The strangest thing happened today.

    .. I thought I should tackle a task on my to-do list. After doing an online search, I found a notebook that seemed like a suitable buy and checked where I could do a hands-on inspection in a city store. After noting the route and opening times, I set off on a pretty long trek...

    Things fall apart to make the right things fall

    in place. At times I want to throw my hands up and give up, but god gives me the strength to stay strong. As bad as things are at this point, I finally got some great things happening :) I went out of my comfort zone and my future will thank me for that!

    Sometimes we have an experience

    that we don’t understand, but if we look deeply, or wait long enough, a reason for that experience will usually reveal itself. All the events in our lives lead to other events, and all that we have manifested in this present moment is the result of past events and experiences...

    Yes I Do.

    My marriage ending happened for a reason. I truly believe that. This is the first time I'm really truly admitting it to myself. My marriage ending left me questioning so much. but my marriage ending truly taught me the importance of a real genuine relationship. It taught...

    Find The Reasoning.

    There have been so many negative things that happened in my life that actually turned out to be great. I believe things happen for a reason. If something bad happens to you, then you learn to appreciate everything else a little more. I always try to see the meaning and...

    I was getting ready for a teaching session.

    Got to work early so that I have enough time to go through my .ppt slides and match the sequence with my handouts. I wanted to have it all sorted and in my head, so that I would coordinate my lesson smoothly. In the back of my mind, however, I sensed that I was preoccupied...

    I believe that things happen

    for a reason , that people and situations come into our lives that have meaning. I am not saying there is no chance in the universe , just that there is a grand design and we have choices , and those choices decide what path we take and the people that in turn come into our...

    You asked, "When did you find yourself?

    " And I simply said, "When somebody loved me." Until now, I didn't realize how true that was. Thinking back, I wasn't afraid of loving him or being with him. No, I was afraid of losing him when I let myself go, when he took a good look and saw the real me. That I wasn't what...

    Wow, How Things Change From One Minute To The Next.

    I wrote on here on April 23 about my wife having an affair and how it has completely turned my life upside down.  Today, a friend I have not seen since I had come home on leave while in the military contacted me.  The feeling I had when she told me who she was is just...

    Yeah Right

    Everything happens for a reason,like in the 14th century when the plaque hit Europe,people asked " why is God punishing us?After all we believe in Jesus so all of our sins are forgiven."The only reason they could come up with was that God was punishing them for allowing the non...

    It All Happens For A Reason
