"God Made Me Pick Up Underwear"
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14
"The passage above came to me while playing a game called “Brick Breaker.” The game is like tennis. You have a paddle that goes from left to right, and you bounce a ball toward bricks. When you hit a brick it disappears. After you hit all the bricks in the stage, you go to the next level. Every once in a while, hitting a brick will release a bonus (extra life, laser, or multiple balls). The funny thing I noticed was that every time I would chase after the bonuses, I would die soon after.
When I was just concentrating on one ball, I would be fine. When the bonuses would pop up, I would get excited because an opportunity to get ahead presented itself. I would have to time it correctly, hit the ball, chase the bonus, and make it back in time to hit the ball again. When I got distracted, I died
At first I was just moving left to right trying to hit one ball. Now I’m trying to hit one ball, catch the bonus, go after the original ball, and press a button to shoot the weapon. A simple game just got complicated.
It’s just like life. Most of our original dreams are to get a good job, find a mate, buy a house, have some kids, and live happily ever after. The focus of most Americans today is buying a bigger house, nice cars, and college for their kids. In the chase for the bonuses in life, we neglect our spouses and children. We spend extra hours at the office to pay for the things we bought and for the things that we desire. We try so hard to keep up with the Joneses, not realizing they’re buried in debt.
"Orlando has an engaging writing style which not only makes the book readable but allows the reader relate to his life experiences. Another word that comes to mind after reading this book is "authentic." Anyone searching for meaning in life will find this read enlightening and affirming. "

"It takes courage for a man to lay bare his struggles and victories for the press. The thing that impresses me most about the author is that he is more concerned with helping others gain victory in this life than he is with the fear of what people may think about him. His sheer determination to tell the truth, go against the tide, and reach his fellow man gives this book its appeal, while its direct, honest style makes it an easy read for the common person. This book is a must read for anyone hoping to conquer an addiction, mend a relationship, or just live a better life. And who doesn't want to do that?"
