The Watch

When I was twelve, I created my first invention. My best friend Kate and I were sitting in the quad when I revealed my life long dream of being an inventor. "Then make me something," she dared. And I did. A couple of weeks later, I handed her a nice purple cardboard box with a... Continue Reading →

You Before Me

The body almost blends completely into the darkness. Actually, what caught my eye was my headlights on the rim of his wheel. It was in the middle of the road. I pulled over and rushed out, nearly tripping on him curled on the ground, his leathers glinting like a black snake in the dirt. He... Continue Reading →

I Miss You

Friend, relative, lover, almost lover, stranger. No matter how far apart and how long it's been, I miss you. Every time someone walks down the street and they have the curl of your hair or the scent of your cologne and I remember the last time you held me in your embrace - truly held... Continue Reading →

Missionary Dating

A while ago, I wrote a blog post on dating non Christians. Lately I've been hearing a few questions about "missionary dating", however, so I figured I'd take the opportunity to expand on that a bit. One of the most common reasons for dating someone who isn't a Christian is the idea that through your... Continue Reading →
