Who Does Anger Really Punish?

After reading the post, Living with Integrity, a friend asked me to share my thoughts on the following: My mother (a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan) did not watch any Steelers games this season. Pittsburgh hired Michael Vick a convicted animal abuser. She is very upset he is there but stuck to what she said. Not […]

Lodged Driftwood

Driftwood and other Flotsam talked about forgiveness and how, like pieces of driftwood, our hurts may need to be thrown back out into the surf many times before they finally go away.  The day after posting that article, I was walking around Lough Derg (in Dromineer, Ireland) and came across this.

The Pull adds drag.  It slows you down. The Pull is the friction that works against your momentum. […]
