"Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" said the Marys to Jesus
I have been puzzled and reflecting on Matthew 27:61 Do you ever just read a line, a verse, a phrase, or a sentence and just get stuck on that line/verse/phrase/sentence?  I do, once in a while. I'm stuck on Matthew 27:61, which, I admit, appears to be an od...

Miseducated to believe you just don't get it when all along you had it that spark that truth that magic.  "My world it moves so fast today/ The past it seems so far away/ And life squeezes so tight that I can't breathe." YES "And every time I try to be, wha...

A poem from 4 years ago
Four years ago I was starting a new position within my ministry and began to journal a lot. When there are a lot of things on my mind, I like to re-read my journals to see if there are any patterns/lessons that need to be repeated. As I was re-reading my jo...

Tell Him You Need Him, The End
Alas we come to the end of Ms. Lauryn Hill's "Miseducation" journey as it interfaces with Matthew. Next week I get to teach morning Bible studies that I've been preparing for almost 9 months. This album has taken about 4 months to discuss on this blog. I co...
