Men must learn how to show love

One of the most unspoken problems I commonly find when I’m counseling couples or women is how terrible men are at showing affection. It’s an underlying problem not often discussed.

Whitney Houston’s demons

When Diane Sawyer asked Whitney Houston to name the “worst devil” in her life, she was expecting an answer like “cocaine”, “pills”, “alcohol” or some other drug. But Whitney’s answer during the 2002 interview was: “The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.” Her answer was partly correct. There […]

A pillar of cloud by day

The above photos were taken on December 16th 2011 in Birmingham, Alabama. The phenomenon is known as “Kelvin-Helmholtz waves”, which I won’t attempt to explain here. (If you really want to know the scientific explanation, check here or here.) I’m more interested in how they show that some apparently far-fetched Bible events are not that inconceivable, […]

No one was born proud

The proud man can learn humility, but he will be proud of it. — Mignon McLaughlin It’s very hard to help a proud person. His pride won’t let him recognize he needs help, let alone receive it. Is there any hope for such person? Sometimes I wonder. On the other hand, I don’t think proud […]
