Thoughts From The Porch

Several months ago, I began writing “Thoughts From the Porch” as a Facebook post. What I didn’t know is that once they’re directly posted to Facebook, they’re subject to a question of ownership. That’s when I began posting them through my blog instead. That’s where they can be found today.

“Thoughts From the Porch” rarely have much to do with my vocation as a writer of marketing copy and web content. They are simply random thoughts about my own experiences and those shared with the world at-large. They tend to be spiritual in nature, simply because I’ve learned over time to nurture the relationship with the God of my understanding. I set aside a special time to do that in the mornings that almost always takes place on my front porch here in White Settlement, Texas. I tend to experience God’s presence on the porch, in the quiet solitude of our little cul-de-sac.

In the time I’ve had on the porch, I’ve come to find that, in reality, everything is spiritual in nature. I see God’s handiwork all around me: in my home, in my family, and in the broader community I’m a part of. Spirituality affects the way I see the world around me. It affects how I act and react to the things I see and do. Believe me, I have my moments that are none too spiritual, but they don’t last as long or come as often as they used to. For that, I truly grateful…

As a writer and something of an introvert, it’s important to connect with the world around me. My hope is that by sharing “Thoughts From the Porch”, I can connect with others. I hope that you find a shared experience and I certainly welcome your comments and suggestions. I hope you follow me along this journey. Feel free to share you thoughts anytime. Meanwhile, I think I’ll grab another cup of coffee and head out front…
