Yeah, 2 posts in one day...unheard of for me...

Quick personal update...its hard for a marriage to continue when there is no appreciation for a spouse, no support and no compromise...but more importantly when one spouse is still in love with another and doesn't realize it...

To make a long story short...Trish and I are no longer together...I am back with the one who truly loves me:  Misty.  I don't know when the divorce will be final but hopefully soon so I can continue to move forward.

The third book is almost done as well...and my kiddos are still fine amidst all of the sudden changes that happened about 6 months ago.

That is all...

Hope all is well...its been a minute, I know, however things have been great and there have been many changes since the last time I added a post.  But, know this, all of the changes have been awesome!

However, my reason for posting is actually somewhat of a political/spiritual rant.  And, you know I normally don't do those, but if I did it on my facebook page all hell would break loose; and I ain't got time to delete a hundred plus peeps, lol.

Anyway, my rant is directed at the meme that's going around showing Trump's family praying with the message below about prayer finally being back in the white house.  My thought is:  REALLY??!!
Ladies and gents...and dumbasses...prayer never left the white house and has been there for years.  Every damn president before Trump has "prayed".  And, just because we see them praying doesn't mean its back in the white house.  It doesn't mean that they're even "believers"!  Just because we have a picture of them praying means nothing to me.  Just because they pray doesn't mean they're "believers".  Just like because someone goes to church, it means that they're a "believer" either.
Matthew 6:5-6New International Version (NIV)Prayer
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Just because you never saw a picture, at least not one that I'm aware of, of Obama praying with his family doesn't mean that they didn't pray!  Maybe Obama understands the meaning of this scripture above!  

James 2:19New International Version (NIV)
19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
Yeah, and so what if Trump believes in God...read the scripture above!  What counts are his actions and so far they haven't exactly been "Christ" like.

Matthew 7:15-20New King James Version (NKJV)

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Yes, we shall know them by their fruits...what fruit has Trump produced so far?  Hmmmm....so far, we have nothing but division and strife.  So far, I haven't seen anything kind, loving, caring, compassionate, peaceful or joyful produced.  Last time I checked those are just "some" of the fruits Christ not only left for us but produced abundantly while He walked this earth.  Those are just "some" of the fruits we as Christians are supposed to produce, if we claim to truly believe in Him.  
So, please if you're a believer and a Trump supporter, I don't knock you for casting your vote, that is your right, however, please don't continue to spread falsehood.  Prayer has always been in the white house, if you cared to have eyes to see it.
And, that is all....

110pm Tuesday

Well, here I am again...

I'm off from one of my jobs today...just chillin...doing the social media thing today...FB, Google plus, Blogger, etc...did a honey do as well...drinking coffee and need to eat now *smiles*

I've been listening to praise and worship the last 2 hours...I've had Jami Smith on repeat *smiles*

Its the only way I can keep my mind right...that and the Word.  Its been an interesting last couple of weeks.  Trish and I are still moving along just fine...still dealing with past memories...she deals better than me, so like good spouses we lean on each other while we both lean on Him.  She is getting me through with her love and wisdom. 

...other than that nothing crazy to report at the moment...kids are fine and work is...well work *laughs*

Anyway...just a quick update on my life...staying in His presence on the daily...that is all

Luke 1:37

1135am Monday...It was the best of times, it was the worst of times lol...

My oh my...how many things can change in a matter of a couple of months...

I know you're asking, "Why are you quoting Dickens in your title?" Don't know why it just seems fitting at the moment!

So, do you want the abridged version or the long version?

Well, I guess I'll just start talking...its been almost a month since I left Misty and returned to my wife Trish. Or should I say its been a month since Trish and I got back together because it was a mutual thing.  Breaking up with her was one of the hardest things I've done in my life due to the fact that I knew that no matter what or how I said it or did it that it would devastate her.  But at the same time it was also one of the easiest things to do, if that makes sense, due to the fact that Trish and I had never stopped loving each other.  Due to the fact that staying together is what God wants or wanted.  God is in the business of saving marriages...not dismantling one to create another.  We are taught biblically that God hates divorce; and I'll go on record by saying that Trish and I are living proof of that. For us to have gone through what we've been through the last 7 months, indiscretions on both sides, etc. and we've stayed together says a lot.

Now is where the healing begins...emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  More importantly spiritually...

One of the ways I heal is thru writing...but you knew that already...if you know anything bout me.  That being said I have much to write about...the end of an affair, and the rekindling of a true marriage.  Yes, it was an affair...we were still married those 7 months we were apart...and 4 months of those were spent in the arms of another woman, i.e. an affair.  Those 4 months were full of hard fast living...adventurous reckless abandon...all that is left is the residue of what it was and what it was shall be put to paper in some form or fashion.  It was destined to anyway.  I have slated it as the third story for my 3rd book, which will only be three short stories. 

I don't know of any other way to wash away the residue...outside of prayer, which I'm doing already...but as I mentioned in my second book, writing is how authors exorcise or wrestle with their demons and/or experiences...life lessons...

I thank God for Trish...she's a damn good woman...a good wife.  To want to make this work, no matter what, no options out, to deal with her own shit and to have to deal with mine says a lot. She's dealing with our current history as well as my history with another woman.  It takes a strong woman to handle that kind of drama.  I am truly blessed. 

So, dear reader...stay tuned for more...I'm sure I'll have more to share with you as I continue to wash away the residue...
