A good read, cover to cover 

I’ve been meaning to finish this book for years but quite often, I’d pick it up, get preoccupied with life and put it down. By neglecting discipline, I was doing myself a huge disservice. A life without discipline is a life without direction. Without direction, my life became empty, trivial and worrisome. I became worn… The post A good read, cover to cover  appeared first on BayArt.

The latter day merry-go-round 

If I am being completely honest, I have been going in circles for the vast majority of my life. It’s an embarrassing omission really; however, it is true. These days everything is happening so fast. Everyone is moving so fast. The thing about moving at such a momentum at all times while simultaneously going in… The post The latter day merry-go-round  appeared first on BayArt.

Are you sober 

I started writing a little over a year ago. About six months into it, I began to feel I was headed in the wrong direction. So, I stopped writing. Instead I read the entire Holy Bible cover-to-cover.I grew up in the church and I read a lot of the scriptures and many of the books… The post Are you sober  appeared first on BayArt.

The Anxiety Trap

Abandoning Doubt 

It’s been a year now since I took that proverbial leap. I’ve walked many miles to avoid this way; however, every direction I turned, ultimately lead me to the same place. Keeping the faith isn’t easy. Truthfully, if it were up to me, I would fail. I know this because in the past I have…

Proof

In a discussion, my good friend says to me: “If only God performed miracles as He did in the scriptures then people would believe.” I nearly fell out of my chair after hearing such a remark. I went on to prove that Jesus, in fact, is STILL in the miracle performing business. I found myself…

Living the Simple Life

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.~Confucius We are so eager to fill our homes, yet so disinterested in cleaning it out. As a result, we now require larger spaces, more storage space, and more clutter for the mind. Did you know that there are more self-storage facilities in North America…
