It's perfect.
It's unbelievable.
It's a miracle
It's a TV dinner.
It's Fuwjax.

The fragrant flagrant derangement of a vagrant hell-bent on your entertainment. I paint words on the canvas of your identity so that together we can become something beautiful, something raw and naked, something eternal. Thank you for becoming my art.

3 Strikes

If you Skype again, this time I'll answer.

Que Sera, Sera

I feel special, and that says more about you than me.

2015

Exit, Stage Left

Well done, good and faithful servant. Come and share your master's happiness.

What Does That Look Like?

For he who loves God without faith reflects upon himself. He who loves God in faith reflects upon God.

Fall in Love with Yourself

It doesn't matter who you are or they are, you can love anyone anywhere anytime. You can even love yourself.

More Beautiful

“Where were you in the hospital? Didn’t you have a nurse named Blair?”

2014

if

if there were no God...

Real Good Thing

Some days are worth celebrating because they aren't the day they were a year ago.

The Silent Dilemma

I asked of my mom, “Mom, what would you do? What would you do with a bug in your shoe?”

The Hunt

I do not want to capture; I have no desire to catch. It’s not because I’m bad at it; it’s because I don’t value those relationships.

Beautiful

Some beautiful things have happened to me the past few weeks, and it would be a shame to split the stories up.

Here

I'm proud to be an Aggie for the same reasons I'm proud to be a Texan and an American.

Art

We use words like "art" without any idea of what we are really talking about.

Legal Status FTW

Legal status is the pretty-pink-bow-on-a-pig way of saying legal discrimination.

Social Contract What?

Let's look at some of the reasons why people claim I should form an opinion about the legal status of marriage and why I think they're ridiculous.

Mahwidge

Marriage is not about love. Marriage is not about sex. Marriage is not about commitment.

Him in You in Him

It may come as quite the surprise, but I have on occasion been known to analyze the circumstances - and people - in my life.

Last Call

From that first moment, I was hooked on fishing for your smile.

Good Night

All too often we miss the transitions that should demand reflection.

So You're Retiring...

I was asked to write a note for a former teacher for her retirement party. Thankfully she did not teach me English.

The Head Goes Boom

Infinity, as you may remember, is a mathematician's fancy way of saying "I don't know."

Take a Little Dip

There aren't many people who understand much about baptism and the ones who do disagree with each other.

2011

Goodbye, Little Girl

We've been together for so long, it's difficult to imagine a life without you.

Even In Riots

To my knowledge, Acts 19 is the only place in the Bible where a god is specifically named that doesn't result in a massacre one way or the other.

The Diet

I've created a new diet. Not "diet" in the sense of "gimmicky way to lose weight" but a full-on life changing process around eating.

Fuwjin Suite v0.9.6

The Fuwjin Suite v0.9.6 is released to Maven Central. Some fun new features in there.

Near-Closures in Java

Closures in Java are always a ripe source for debate, discussion, flame wars, angst ridden blog posts about the joys of other languages, etc.

2010

Credo

I just don't understand what message I'm supposed to be hearing from the modern pulpit.

Token Acts of Service

Every time I've ever heard someone preach on John 13, they've said it was about serving each other.

The Rest of the Song

We spend all week chasing what we want; why does the time we set aside to recenter on what is truly important wind up being about what we want too.

Before Your Graduation

An end to a time is a time for reflection. A new beginning is time for anticipation. Graduation is both.

2009

What Sacrifice

If you could sacrifice your son and save the whole world, wouldn't you?

Stillness

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14 Be still, for this is a sacred day. Do not grieve. Nehemiah 8:11 Be still befor...

Fluff v. PB

This is the story of Cap'n Fluffy's run in with Bucktooth the Pirate

The Walk

Some places are haunted by the memories of what was but is no more.

One Unit To Rule Them All

And so, my dear pupils, it is time for another foray into the deep effervescent thoughts of that most delightful system of measurement, the Mike Unit.

In

I’m in love.

2008

Cribs - By Request

Money can't buy you love, but it can buy you stuff that makes you more eccentric than the guy living next door.

Eulogy for Lorraine

I feel like being really selfish. Grandma doesn't care that we're here. She doesn't care, but I do.

Abortionanigans

Planned Parenthood is one of the most amazingly poor names one could have given any company ever.

2007

The Statics of Us

I killed it. A beautiful newborn. I simply choked the life right out of it. I put it out of my misery.

2006

Back To The Fuwture

I've been waiting for years for the perfect blog to use that lil' gem of a title.

We Three Rings

I get angry when "symbol" and "communion" wind up in the same sentence.

That One Has Explained Him Fully

No one has seen God at any time. The unique One - fully God - the “I am” in the bosom of the Father, that One has explained him fully. - John 1:18

What Is It?

It seems that church on Easter Sunday is about almost everything besides Jesus' resurrection.

My mom’s story, unlike most people, begins not with her birth but with mine.

Garlic Wings

I always used to say "Every woman wants to own a man."

Shhh. Be Verwy Verwy Qwiet

Elmer Fudd and I have separate wascally wabbit hunting grounds; his acetate, mine in the far more elusive job market.

Third and Final Toast

I had the distinct priviledge and pleasure this past weekend of giving both my first and my second toast at a wedding.

2004

Which Came First?

Following one of my previous blog posts, my brother asked “Is forgiveness a response to repentance, or is repentance a response to forgiveness?”

Sing A Little Song

I ran across this song the other day. I couldn’t find the lyrics online, so I’m posting them here. It’s called “Around My Neck” by 100 Portraits

Reflections: 1 Corinthians 1

A stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, it is the power and wisdom of God.

PETAL

Everyone wants to protect the cow, but no one ever cares about the cotton.

I do, more often than not, use words inappropriately, but I think the ability to define them is paramount.
