July 3 – And I Screwed Up Again

3:185 – And I Screwed Up Again #faithbites #faithjourney screwed So this #faithbites was going to be about something else and then I screwed up again. Yelled again twice when I shouldn’t have.

July 1 – Are You Feeling A Little Wonky?

3:183 – Are You Feeling A Little Wonky? #faithbites #faithjourney wonky The word “Wonky” has been in my head last since last nice as in “I’m feeling a little wonky”.

3:173 – Being For Jesus Doesn’t Mean You Are Against Others #faithbites #faithjourny against The word I have been using to describe our world is nuance or lack there of. If you say you like something, like the president, then you are evil and a racist. If you like Joe Biden, then you are for a police state. Another example, […]

3:170 – One More Time With Feeling #faithbites #faithjourney feeling I’m sitting here listening to my youngest playing with the dog as the rain and storms roll in.

June 18 – What Do You Treasure?

3:168 – What Do You Treasure? #faithbites #faithjourney treasure Setting There has been a lot in the news about our heritage. Statues being removed, brands that we know changing, upheaval about change. The key has been “they are taking away my heritage” or “this is what I treasure”.
