New Commitment

I have always loved to write. I wrote countless stories as a child, in all kinds of genre. I like to think that my skills as a writer have improved since then, but honestly I have no point of reference other than my own to validate this belief. What is not in doubt, however, is my love for what I believe is the most elegant way of communicating.

When God chose to reveal His truths to mankind, he chose to use written words to give us His promises. The stories of saints of old are set to words that we can still read about today. Words have shaped families, careers and nations. That is why I think to be a wordsmith is one of the most divine callings you can have.

Even though I have always loved words, my verbal communication skills are at best passable, at worst, a deficit. I have always loved to read, I love to learn new words and their meanings, but for some reason that does not carry over to my ability to verbalize my thoughts clearly. Maybe its because I've always been more comfortable behind the scenes, whether it was playing in a band or sharing my thoughts, but the bottom line is that I have never excelled in my oratorical abilities.

Comfort Food

There's a reason why it's called "comfort food". Praise God for southern cooking!
