The End?

From the moment of my writing until midnight tonight, I have to make a decision whether to continue the domain of 5ptsalt.com. It’s not easy. On the one hand, I started it for all the wrong reasons. On the other, there is evidence that some have benefited by it. Then again, there are many who […]

In Case You’ve Been Wondering

Obviously, I have not been posting lately, at least not since February 24, 2014, and  yes, there’s a reason. First, I’ve been on vacation, physically and spiritually speaking, from blogging – what it is, means, what good is it, etc. I am a preacher, called of God, and that is my first priority. Secondly, I’ve […]

Coming to An End

All things must come to an end, and 5ptsalt is no exception. It’s not completely over, it’s just beginning. Stay tuned.

Excuse the Mess

Just a quick note to let you know what’s going on here at the salt mine… In short, this place needs to get organized. Apparently, there were quite a few articles that dropped through the sieve unnoticed, that is, unread. The reason is simple. The site is not organized as it should be. My bad. […]

That way, we can […]

In the past, I have stupidly allowed this blog to be sullied unnecessarily because I made decisions against my better judgment regarding […]

A Blog of Salt

No, I haven’t made a decision yet. But the following is a poetic comment I received this morning that makes me think at least the last three years have not been totally in vain….Thank you David.  – JT. David Leach – There once was a blog of salt 5 points and more from Joel’s vault […]
