    Writing Took a Back Seat

      So, my writing has been taking a back seat to other online marketing endeavors for quite a while now. From affiliate sites, to selling tee shirts to jewelry…   Having just joined #Periscope – I have decided to offer to do some on-camera reading – so join me over at Periscope @MichaelLJoshua – Beginning…

  • Grandpa Still Carves the Turkey

    Grandpa Still Carves the Turkey

    The vibration of the wheels on the old hardwood floors brought a silence to the house. As everyone gathered around, grandpa rolled into the living room. The Parkinson’s had slowed him down physically. Well, slowed is not the right word – he suffered from the jerking and bobbing that comes with the disease – his…

  • Free Bible Toolbar for Your Browser

    I haven’t posted in a while – but I just found an awesome toolbar for my browser that gives me inspiration everyday so wanted to share it with everyone.   It’s free and it’s awesome!   There is a link to the download on my site in the left-hand sidebar – Again it’s free and…

  • Face to Face

    Face to Face

    I reached for the potatoes. Baked potatoes for dinner. That works. I am tired of being by myself. But I do have to eat. I could have left over tacos, or the spaghetti…but I’m not in the mood for leftovers. As I reached into the bag of potatoes, I realized that this was just one…

  • Grandpa Socks

    Grandpa Socks

    I felt the hot sand under my feet and wondered why it didn’t seem to bother the little ones. Here at the lakeside with three of my grandchildren, the youngest not even two years old. They played in the water and the sand, completely unaware of the inherent risks in the fun. I stepped into…

    Black Sheep – On the Outside, Looking In

    If you are the black sheep of the family, no one actually has to tell you. You know. As a matter of fact, it has been told to you for years – but no words may have ever been spoken about it at all. Regardless, it is no secret. I am a black sheep. Only…

  • Freedom Reigns

    Freedom Reigns

    A few months ago, as I drove from Colorado Springs to my job in Wamsutter, Wyoming, I endured the screams of a young kitten named Tuxedo, calling out from his carrier. He wanted his freedom. And he knew that I could give it to him, if I wanted. He didn’t realize that the reason he…

  • Broken Glass

    Broken Glass

    I leaned back in my chair so I could see over the cubicle wall. 8:41. He’s late. Then I heard it. Squeak, squeak. The sound of the wheels on the mail cart brought the chatter in the office to silence. Squeak, squeak. I leaned out into the walkway – he was two cubicles away. Squeak,…

  • Blind Faith

    Blind Faith

    At least that’s what it seemed to be. But my blind faith was directly relative to my being able to see the back-end of the 18-wheeler ahead of me. My first winter drive, a few months back, across I-80 in Wyoming included what has been referred to as a “white out.” I had never seen…

  • Beyond the Shirt and Tie

    Beyond the Shirt and Tie

    The starched collar left no question that this was a serious matter. Job interviews always are. As he stepped into the office, his mannerism was unmistakable. It’s not like he didn’t know. He knew that it was obvious to everyone who saw him. He leaned into the owner’s desk, answering the questions as clearly and…
