It’s been nip-and-tuck on this Blog going on two days now over my last post: there might be demons and there are ALWAYS questions.
It’s particularly ferocious doings in the comments sections with my Christian brothers Drew, George and John game-fully wading in, hearts fully exposed (I am not, by definition, a Christian, but they are still my brothers).
However, under his own steam, the inestimable Aaron Masih (a warrior, in any light) has set forth his views on his Blog: A Life of Passion. The post is called: The Struggle Worth Having.
I’ll suggest you consider reading it, within it’s entirety.
Just to wet your appetite – following was my own comment, under that worthy effort:
“I think I’m honored.
God issued me discernment. And, with it a keen desire to live my life in a way that glorifies everything that I can recognize around me. I used to refer to this as living my life like Christ. But, as time went by I felt like that was similar to wearing a medal I had not earned. There is, not so simply, a bar, some how set.
So, living by that code, while remaining uncertain about, how and where, I might end-up sometimes feels like standing on the ledge preparing to tower jump.
But, some how I think I’m going to make it – because it wasn’t me that created wind that can be used to offset gravity.”
And, I have such terrific friends, “good men in a storm”, to be sure, standing by to break my fall.
There is virtu, here. And, fortuna! Yes, Dr. Pappas, my worlds converge. My hunger naught but builds to not only learn, but to truly, I say, understand.
Readers of this Blog, rally to me – give me that word! …if it isn’t understanding.
Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
