Video Blog Entry — December 10, 2014

Video Blog Entry

As a writer you’re always hidden behind your words, physically at least. It’s great because you can truly create a completely different version of yourself through your words and verse. However, as with most people whom regularly partake in any creative form of expression, sometimes it can all feel like you’re taking yourself a bit too seriously and you need to be silly from time to time. Find the inner child, so to speak!

So I thought that I would come out from behind the keyboard and try my hand at speaking, off the cuff, through a wee video blog. Now, as you will very soon come to realise, this is a completely ad-libbed video, not a hint of editing about it! I also lost my nerve at the end, but hey, at least I had the balls for a few minutes to put something a bit different to my typical content up 🙂

Sometimes She dislikes He for no reason
She just feels like it in that day
And isn’t that the sad truth of it?
Sometimes we all hurt others, just because we can?
It’s always easier to see the Evil all around
Rather than the small good deeds that occur everyday, without a sound
You can spend a lifetime dreaming of the things yet to happen
Missing out on the simple pleasures of the present
Ever wonder why they call it that? The clues in the name.
They call us the human race, but who are the winners? Really?
We all end up at the same finish line.
Maybe you class winning as the distance ran? 70 years? Is that a good innings?
Or maybe you count the amount of people who you leave a mark on as the winners rosette?
Me? I’m more happy for every day I wake up still here!
Yet it’s so deliciously easy to get caught up in the minutiae of the daily grind
Be wary of looking at the stars for too long, some warn
They might disappear, and you’ll be disappointed by the dawn

My relationship with God — December 3, 2014

My relationship with God

Many who know me well are not aware of my deep relationship with God. Deep down, below my personality of a somewhat bawdy, moderately intelligent, gregarious and sometimes driven way too quickly to temper individual, there is always God. I don’t ever seek to speak to others of my love for God, or to try and change their beliefs. He is my Heart and that’s all that matters to me.

There have been many dark times in my life where I have questioned His ways. However, I think this is just part of my journey, as I get older I am beginning to trust in him more and open my heart to the path He is walking with me. Although I will always feel a lack of human companionship when there are no other human beings to be found, I always feel a presence with me. I believe it to be Him. So I am never really alone, for He is always with me.

He is the only one who will every truly know me, every good deed and dark thought that I have ever done or possessed. Yet He loves me still. It’s because of His love that I am able to take the hurt that has lingered from my earthly loves and heal from them and realise that his Divine love is the most important love I possess.

Most importantly, it is through His love that I have learnt to love others, to forgive when I have been wronged, and to ask for forgiveness when I have hurt others.

I identify as a Christian but I do not visit church, for I believe that God is everywhere and present wherever I am and whatever I am doing. However, I do aim to visit church more often, just to reflect as sometimes the words I need to pray come easier when I am in His house.

I love him with all of my heart.
