Growing Pains: Fire In My Bones

I did not expect to end my undergraduate career sleeping in my bed, with a belly full of growing pains.

My current body couldn't contain where I wanted to go, and it made me angry. Once again, my bones are groaning. Here I am, alive and kicking. I am out, restless and angry. Yet, what is this perfect peace that guards my heart?

You all know the cat, now here's the tale. (or tail!) Enjoy the trilogy. Disclaimer: This is not, and isn't meant to be, allegory. Many parts of my Emotional Support Cat story reflect themes of the gospel, however it is not the complete message of the gospel, nor does the actual gospel ever mention a … Continue reading The Gospel, Told By A Cat Called Jet

Credo Music: As Iron Sharpens Iron

"As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." Proverbs 27:17 NKJV In a few posts back (Stepping Out of the Sun), I wrote about how being socially isolated in high school allowed me to focus on growing as an individual.
