    What Started It?

    When I was a kid I was told and heard there is a God, but I never knew who God was. I was raise with Jehovah Witnesses but I wasn't Baptize, I guess I was the only one that wasn't Baptize in my Family. My Mom wanted me to chose what should I believe, but why do we have to believe...

    Finishing My Experience

    This is what I thought when I read some parts of the Bible, Jesus told his people that if you saw what I look like, we already know what our Father looks like. Well I look at it this way. What God meant was that he sent Moses to create Christ, Moses is the starter of Christ in...

    Today I realized that God is not something that we strive to be or someone we meet, but it's simply the force that's pushing our cells to divide and die and recreate themselves... God is life... I realized today that we are all made of the same fabric, that we are all...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)
