While at times I have trouble believing there is more to life than what I can see, God has a tendency of surprising me and reminding me there is always more than what I can see.

While I’ve written quite a bit about myself in this blog, I thought y’all might enjoy hearing a summary of how God brought me to where I am today. If I had to sum up my story in a few words, I would definitely say that ‘God is good’…

This series of articles on sarcasm started when a friend of mine pointed out that some of my sarcastic comments towards other people were kind of cutting. He and I both knew that most of my sarcasm was playful and that’s why he needed to take the time to point that out.
