Introduction I am a man that has been beaten down for much of my life. But like the fantasy phoenix I am rising again. I once was up a long time ago, but needed to be broken for the Master’s use. Like silver refined, or hot iron on an anvil my Master has both purged and purified and beaten me into His own image, a reflection of what He wanted to see looking back at Himself. I just had to get out of the way. After many, so many years it seems, I feel I may be ready to flap my wings again. Now they are fragile from the molting process, My Lord has renewed my strength. May He guide as they attempt to beat again. May He be the wind that sets my sailing path. May my flight never veer off the straight and narrow. For the times I will fail may He be gracious and gently rebuke me, chasten His loved one, and allow me to hurt as few as possible. Let my repentance to those whom I hurt come as quickly, but more meaningful, than the sins I will commit towards others. Father God help me from stumbling, but when I do, help me stand. Give me the courage to be a clarion call to the masses or to the one. Let me serve others, and be Your slave, or accept grace. Lord, most of all, keep me focused on You.

If your whole body were a hot air balloon, would you stop eating spicy food?

The only way I would stop eating spicy food is if Christ returns! Habaneros RULE!
