How Do We Edify One Another?

building1What comes to mind, when you hear the word, “edify”? Is it just a kind word? How about a positive pep talk? Would you think of  constructive criticism? 

Is there more to edifying someone than a kind word or compliments. Though a kind word can go a long way; an apt answer or a constructive word can do a great deal, for someone in need.

What is this? Am I saying, “Negativity is acceptable?” Destructive speech is never really acceptable; yet it is preferable to silence. What am I talking about?

Can We Talk? Are You Really Interested in…?

http://www.blanchardinternational.co.in/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/can-we-talk.-150x150.jpg Can we talk? Are you really interested in a loudmouth YouTuber named BDoubleO100? Are you really interested in YouTube related stories? How I would love for BDoubleO to show his face and read this blog.

The man would likely ask the same question. Is your audience seriously interested in a loudmouth named BdoubleO? I could write such blog posts and it would annoy the heck out of the poor guy.

A Spiritual Journey

TheRoadIt’s a dangerous thing to step outside your door. For once you place your feet upon the road; you never know where it will take you. Though I have not visited anyplace nearly fantastic as Rivendale or Gondor; I can certainly agree with that wise old hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

If you missed it, the above is a partial quote from Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. Like Bilbo and Frodo, I’ve been on a journey for the past few months. Like Bilbo, I am far from dead.  Where have I been to? Let’s put it this way. It certainly wasn’t to Mordor or anything like that. Continue reading

Say “Merry Christmas”

A week ago, a friend sent a link to an entertaining Christmas song. At first, I chuckled and enjoyed it. I honestly didn’t give it much thought.

This morning, I am considering a good story, on Christmas. It’s Christmas and NOT Xmas. The lovely little Christmas song came to mind. I decided to give “Say Merry Christmas” a second look. I didn’t just revisit the link; I looked up the actual YouTube page. What did I find? Continue reading

Editor’s Note: For a couple of years, I have had this poetic song rising up, in times of anxiety and stress. For me, I enjoy singing; hence, I am calling this poem, a poetic song. You are free to have a different opinion.
Why am I releasing it, now? It just seems the time is right. I hope and pray this tuneful poem will bless those, who read it. If you are a songwriter or singer, then please feel free to make it into an actual song.
Enjoy!

When We Practice To Assume

The other day, I received an email from a friend. He’s really isn’t an actual friend; rather, the man is a YouTube entertainer. For several months, I’ve sent emails and tweets to this guy. I had assumed the friend was okay with it. Suddenly, I get the following:

Please don’t contact me or my family! Though you have good intentions; you have the execution of a bull in a china shop!”  I’m paraphrasing the actual comment. My friend was a lot more gracious than I am being. What did I do wrong?
