  • Taking a shot..

    Padraic Guilfoyle
    6 Nov 2014 | 11:03 pm
    Taking a shot of alcohol is an affront to the senses. But have you ever wondered what you look like during that fleeting moment of torture? In his series “Shot Face,” London-based photographer Tim Charles captures the visual experience by photographing subjects directly after they ingest alcohol. Their reactions are raw and hilarious. Which face is closest to the one you think you make? Take a look at the photos below, and visit Charles’ Tumblr for more. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/06/faces-after-taking-shot_n_6114120.html?&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000067

    Something I did when I made the decision to get sober was speak to my enablers about it.  Now, I’m not saying the word “enablers” in a negative connotation— in my experience, these were people who cared about me a great deal, who were sensitive, and who didn’t know what else to do or how to handle my extreme situation.  They weren’t enablers, I made them my enablers. That being said, I expressed how serious I was about my change and even asked for help/support.  Of course, they agreed to help me in any way they could (and I will be forever grateful to…

    I sat in front of this computer for about 30 minutes trying to decide if I wanted to do this. I laid this to rest this year finally let it go at 41 years of age. I sat here and worked through a panic attack, warned my husband that I was not to be bothered so if he needed something to need it now. I am still nervous and shaking with anxiety. I feel sick to my stomach. I am going to go a little different direction for a moment so I can build some courage and strength to get through this without feeling pain. I haven’t mentioned my dad at all and my step dad only a handful of times. My…

  • Origin, Meaning, Morality, & Destiny: An atheist and a Christian square off on four qualifiers of a Worldview

    Introduction:  Discussion and open dialogue are a wonderful aspect of a free society.  To that end, a friend and I have gotten together to address the topic of worldview.  Two worldviews will be examined, the Atheist perspective and the Christian perspective. What makes up a worldview?  The prompt I suggested was on four central topics, the four qualifiers of a worldview made popular by Dr. Ravi Zacharias, a Christian philosopher and writer. The four areas were: Origin – How does your worldview explain the origins of humanity? Meaning – How is meaning described within your…
  • Climbing up on Christ’s Cross

    Speaking with a dear friend and sharing my frustrations of late, she mentioned Calvary’s experience.  I said, “Not to diminish what Christ has done for me, but sometimes I wish I could climb up on that cross.”  Not I was equal to what Christ had done but so I could feel closer to Him while I go through what it is I’m going through, yet in truth, as He couldn’t see His Father’s presence with Him, I am having a difficult time seeing His presence with me.  Doubt has begun to enter my mind wondering if I am called to this ministry of helping addicts because I’m beginning to…

    Have Americans in mass gone off their rockers. Apparently so, the U.S. top money-making drug has been crowned, and it’s not an allergy medicine or an erectile dysfunction medication. You have definitely heard of it, but may not know what it really is. To watch the ads on TV, you would think it’s the drug equivalent of Sriracha; just something you add to your anti-depressant of choice and give it a little kick. It’s the powerful anti-psychotic drug Abilify. Patrick Bateman would be so proud. Anyone who watches TV knows it is a modern day mother’s little helper, hawked…
