    Hisbits: The Road To Pixar

      When I say Pixar, characters flood your mind. Andy’s toys, Sully and Mike, a super family in witness protection, and a house filled with balloons parade through your mental horizon. The funny thing is, it all started with a divorce, a failed computer system, and a fired artist. George Lucas, Yoda’s Dad, was in trouble. His divorce was truly costing him his fortune. He made the decision to sell his computer graphics division to a friend. A computer guy who had just lost the company he founded, named Steve Jobs. The company sold the Pixar Image Computer, mostly to the government and medical facilities. They did have one other buyer,…

    Why Jesus Walked On Water

    Recently my wife Ashley and I were teaching the KidsPoint class on Sunday at our church, Point Of Mercy. The lesson started off with the storm on the Sea Of Galilee, and Jesus walking on water. I love kids, and I love their questions. Their very first question was, why did Jesus walk on water?

I would like to share with you three suggestions I feel will add value to your life, in a meaningful way. Life should contain mystery, as well as opportunity. Men have explored continents, located cures for tropical diseases, and won Pulitzer Prizes for  two reasons. First, the need was both real and great. Second, the pursuit was noble and exciting.

    The Sea Horse: New In Town

      Mimic had chosen a costume.  He wasn’t unaccustomed to them, having acted all his life. This would be different, it was his first public persona as a Baronet of The Society Of Thieves. Prior to now, he had worked in the shadows, preferring to build his public reputation as head of the Almeric Group. Leonard Almeric would have to learn to juggle two faces.
