A List of Old Stories

 

This morning, I went digging for some possible story ideas. I have read on Frank Viola’s site, “Beyond Evangelical” and Timethief’s “One Cool Site” about revising my old blog posts. A year ago, I could not have done it. Today, I thought it useful to list some interesting stories.

I’d love to hear what you think of them. I’m just going to list a couple of them.

  1. The Tragedy of Goodman Brown Goodman Brown is a short story written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I provided a link to the actual story in this post. This article is my response to what I saw, when reading.
  2. Get Out of The Backseat! Thought this new title would work better. We’re called to co-labor with God and not merely sit in the backseat of a car.
  3. The Good Muslim This is a modern take on the parable of the Good Samaritan, as told by Jesus.
  4. Waiting for Godot Godot is a two act play. I saw the first act in college and took notice of the implied meaning. Years later, the play came to mind with a twist. I hope you enjoy my twist and spin on this old play.

I trust you’ll enjoy reading these stories.

 

What Is In Your Hand?

A few months ago, a friend introduced a fascinating game called Minecraft.  It’s a sandbox style game.  This means the game is open and there are no set goals. You just build whatever you can imagine.  There is also an online multiplayer version. Be forewarned, this game is quite addictive. It was for me.

After a couple of months of endlessly playing Minecraft, I felt a strong need to take a break from this game.  As I sought to recommit myself, I began asking “How am I serving Jesus, with this game?”  The problem is not Minecraft; rather it is how I was using the game. Continue reading

The Diligent Hand

Recently, I have been reminded of an old proverb:

4Poor is he who works with a negligent hand,
But the (A)hand of the diligent makes rich.  [Proverbs 10:4 NASB]

Some time ago, I had visited the site run by a woman with the handle, TimeThief.  From Time’s OneCoolsitebloggingtips site, one could gain some very helpful guidance for building and maintaining a great blog site.  Almost everyday, Time would update her site with some solid insights on blogging wisely.  Yet, this story isn’t about Time; rather it’s about one who is diligent in the work before them.

I wish that I could say the same for myself; however it is first part of the proverb that I must take.  I have not been diligent in my writings and the up keeping of this blog. As such, my writings and the blog has suffered.  Not only this, others have suffered too.  Our negligence will often snowball and impact others and not just the initial person. Continue reading

The Persistent Cat

Honey is a very fascinating cat.  Every time, my mother arrives home, the cat would literally sit by the front door and awaits for her to come in.  Wherever my mother walks about, the cat would shadow her.  It is amazing that my mother has not tripped over Honey.  The large cat is but an inch away from her.  “Honey! Get out of my way!” yells my mom.  “You’re going to trip me, one of these days!”
