Emotions are an interesting state of mind.
They can be very simple or so complex it is impossible to understand.
Occasionally they get sticky like bubble gum on the bottom of your shoe or like holding jello on a hot summer day.
They can be difficult to catch or shoo away like a fly.
From time-to-time, emotions can feel like you are chasing a butterfly without a net.
Every-so-often emotions are like a game of hiding and seek, immediately found or completely lost in the dark.
Now and then they are like a reading the same page of a book over and over again, completely unable to turn the page.
At times, they can feel like you are on a high-speed chase or lost in the desert without GPS.
Look! it’s a bird, a plane, no…it’s an emotion higher than a kite in the sky or sunk like a penny at the bottom of the sea.
If they are lost, stolen or broken my memory of them becomes so foggy they become impossible to be me.

I am second.
I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer.
My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family.
Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself.
My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul.
What is your temenos circle?
