The Attention Deficit Compan

  • Anger is the bottle of warm soda that you dropped on the floor and then left on the table for an unsuspecting person to open.  Sometimes it’s a suit of armor (see Hurt).
  • Anxiety is a parasite that feeds on Doubt and defecates more than it consumes.
  • Confidence is the jar that contains Anxiety.  Nobody knows what's in there, but you.  
  • Contentment happens when you stop bitching long enough to count even a fraction of your blessings.
  • Desire and Fearthe two puppeteers who try to move you about.
    They inevitably tangle your strings.
  • They inevitably tangle your strings. 
  • Despair is a sea of Sadness on a moonless night in March. Hope is a dolphin.
  • Disappointment is a result of focusing on the outcome rather than on the process.
  • Discontent is what you get when you can’t see what you already have.
  • Embarrassment is the ragged underwear beneath a suit of Dignity.
  • Envy is the result of looking in the mirror and seeing somebody else instead of yourself.
  • Faith is a conviction made with insufficient evidence.
  • Gratitude is Grace going the other way.
  • Grief and Sorrow are the wounds left behind when a part of you is ripped away. Sympathy is the bandage and Compassion is a kiss to make it better.  
  • Guilt is the hangover your conscience gets when it realizes what Selfishness has done.
  • Happiness is the prize you get if you stay on the ride through the ups and downs, remain seated, keep your hands inside the car at all times, and hold on to the few things that really matter.
  • Hatred is not the opposite of Love.  That’s Indifference. Hate is the venom of the snake that inevitably bites its own tail.
  • Hurt is the little person inside a big suit of Anger, like the Wizard of Oz.
  • Jealousy is the jailer who tortures himself when his prisoner tries to escape.
  • Loneliness comes to visit when your roommate is a self-image that you don’t really like.
  • Love is God, for God is Love.  All of it! Every warm feeling or thought, every kind word, every secret longing, every unselfish action, ever and everywhere: the unseen, often unfelt centripetal force that makes us One.  To learn how to Love and how to Be Loved – that’s why we’re here.  All the rest is colored bubbles.
  • Sadness is something  that you need once in a while so you’ll recognize  Happiness when it happens.
  • Self-Pity is Sadness with Low Self-Esteem.
  • Shame is the noise a secret makes when it rattles the closet door.
  • Suffering is the soreness you get for resisting what is.  
  • Vengeance is where Pride goeth after the fall.  Humiliation is the driver.
  • Zeal is Enthusiasm on Speed.

CHRIST on an Acrostic: The Cross is Us!

Christ did not cease to suffer after His death.
He endures our pain: every stab, every woe.
Remember that He arose before He ascended.
It matters not that His body once died.
Still suffering ~ for us ~  Christ lives
Though He insists His burden is light.

"Know that I am with you always."  [Matthew:28-20]

Note:  The P is silent, as in swimming.

This is the day the Lord has made;
but let's not get too overjoyed.
For minute by minute it's destined to fade;
and once it's gone by, it's destroyed.

This little gem is just a reminder that I'm still on the planet.
I've been busy writing music -- soon to be presented on
