• Micracles Defined by Craig Kimbrough

    What is a miracle? Some would say walking on water, making it rain, unexplained healings that defy normal human logic, or someone being saved out of the blue when it was evident that they were just about to perish.  I would be inclined to agree that all these things can be miracles, but what really makes any one of these things a miracle is not only the defying of the odds, also the realization that it was the magic of God and the Universe stepping in. Example: Seeing it change from sun to rain instantly may not be a miracle, but needing it to rain in that moment and saying…

  • Is It Time To Stop Watching?

    I was a part of a criminal organization.  One of the Mob bosses had just gotten out of prison and was telling me that he knew someone had evidence on him.  It turned out that whoever it was left some personal information behind.  I knew that it was my daughter who had the evidence, whether she knew it or not. I also knew that the organization would want to kill her.  I kept thinking about ways of stopping oncoming danger headed her way.  I also kept thinking “how could I have gotten her in so much danger?”  The company I kept and the life I led was now affecting her.…

  • A Conversation Or Signs For More Posts Ahead

    The other day I was talking to my friend Charles who writes as a jazz critic for the Metro Times and has a wonderful jazz blog on Blogger.   As we were talking about our blogs and he began to give me his opinion about my blog which I could tell he had been reading and knew very well.  He said that he really liked the post  A Secret To Peace Of Mind.  Charles also told me that I had the kind of blog that leaves you wanting more and makes you want to come back every couple days to see what else I have written.   He said that my posts…

  • This Life Is Easy

    This life is easy.  This is what I have been saying to myself all week as I watch incredible things get magically taken care of.  I wrote about this in my book Wise Words years ago.  I explained how my teacher Mr. Ambrister and I had a running joke.  When ever I was struggling and things looked impossible, he would tell me about the path and how I needed to meditate all the time.  “He said “ Sonny, when you have the kind of problems that you have, you have to meditate all the time.”  I knew he meant to keep my mind on God, the lesson, and the higher…

  • Sincerity

    What does it mean to be sincere?  I believe that most of us don’t know and are rarely sincere.  I remember some time ago when I was speaking on the subject, a friend of mine stated that he wanted to lose weight but would not get out and jog or do whatever it took daily to have it happen.  He laughingly said “I think about exercising every day but will not do it.  I guess I am not sincere yet.” How many of us, right now at this moment, want to have something happen in our lives, and may even claim that we really want it bad, but don’t realize…

  • Dream and Vision Clarification

    This morning I had a dream that reminded me of the way a certain person in my world used to behave years ago.  It was not pretty, and I must say I would not appreciate it in my life at all.  I had not seen any evidence of a problem, but after having the dream I wondered if it was a sign not to be ignored.  In my dream I was being told to remember how this person used to behave.   And I did.  I remembered how much it shocked me at the time and how much it concerned me.  I also became very concerned as to whether this…
