“In the course of justice,

none of us should see salvation.”

-Portia (from Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’)

Come unto Christ, and be perfected in him…

and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness,

and love God with all your might, mind and strength,

then is his grace sufficient for you

Lance Armstrong is a disgrace.

Image

He is a disgrace to America, to sports,

to the cancer community, and to humanity in general.

Image

Harsh? Yes.

Sad?    Definitely.

True?   Absolutely.

I appreciate people like Greg LeMond who aren’t afraid to acknowledge the (figurative!) elephant in the room and tell it like it is: Lance is a criminal, a liar, an adulterer, a bully, and a thug.

Myth vs. experience.

Justice and Mercy.

More to come.

Much more.

Sometimes telling the truth is terribly painful, uncomfortable, embarrassing, and inconvenient,

Image

BUT IT HAS TO HAPPEN!

“The truth will set you free”

~John 8:23

Image

“The truth can be ugly beyond imagination,

but concerning such topics as abuse, we simply CANNOT ignore it.

It may set others free as well.  Figuratively and literally.”

especially when she’s free styling.

Free Styling.

My hair was free styling.

Free falling…

John’s version (LISTEN TO IT!!!!) is better than Tom Petty’s.

Could go on forever but must go now.

chao!

PS.  I really don’t like violence.  I have a lot of reasons why and lots of thoughts on this subject.  Stay.  Tuned.
