When I Close My Eyes

When I close my eyes I imagine a different world…

Children playing without masks

All of us being able to go out without face coverings

A safe return to work
Openness to more people working from home

No one denied an education who can’t afford it

Those with disabilities having more work and educational opportunities

People putting an end to hate

No more cyberbullying

Outstretched loving humanity to those living through challenging life circumstances

Everyone rising to their God-given potential

All political parties striving to work together rather than apart

Building communities instead of breaking them down
Stopping racial inequality

The addicted escaping the prison of their addictions

A world of harmony, not disharmony

Homeless being a word of the past

Poverty being a word of the past

No more need for food banks

Ending discrimination

All human traffickers brought to justice

Those who have been trafficked getting professional counselling to begin the healing process


Looking after the environment so our children and our children’s children have a world

Everyone doing their part to build a more caring society

Many of these things may never come to be.
But if we don’t work together for a better world, I can only imagine what kind of

world it will be, when we open our eyes to the opposite reality.

I’m a stumbling sinner saved by grace seeking to teach others how to find it.

About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
