About…Morris E. Wray

Morris E. Wray

A little info about myself.  I grew up during the era of rotary dial telephones where it was quite common to make a phone call and receive a busy signal.  That annoying tone indicated that the phone number you were trying to reach was in use and your call could not be completed. We now live in an era of three way calling and call waiting and a busy signal is virtually unheard of. Yet with all of the technological advances, information overload is rule of the day and nobody is listening.  we’re still not getting through to each other. Although writing this blog maybe one more contribution to the already overwhelmed airway, it is my one feeble effort to just “reach out and touch someone.”  Communication and dialogue is the key to healing all that which ill’s.

I am a retired 62 yr. old African American male. I have six (6) grown children and many grand children and 2 great-grand children ( I keep telling my children, God was talking to Adam and Eve NOT yall–they are not listening).  I’m newly remarried to a wonderful and intelligent woman (Some may want to question her intelligence because she married me).   She blogs as well, and she produces a very professional podcast entitled “Celebrate Your Life” ( Did I just plug her podcast?).

Ok, back to me, I hold three degrees, last graduating in 1994 with a M.A in Geography–GO Zips–NCAA national soccer champion 2010-2011, Fear The ROO!  I write for the love of it. I’m sure I make mistakes in writing.  I employ my wife as much as I can to proofread my stuff.

I carry many childhood hurts, teenage hurts and many (some self-inflicted) adult year hurts. That is why I write on anger and forgiveness, love and compassion as much as I do. It is to help me first, and maybe help or gain new insight from someone else on my journey to health and wholeness–I have not given up on me.

    Thanks for your comments, Morris, and the subscription. I’ll do the same! I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far (even the nurse story — perhaps our humor runs along the same silly lines?).

    Anyway, it’s always a treasure to discover a new writer (at least, new to me, right?).

    May your inkwell never run dry!

  18. Thanks for inviting me to view your blog. Pray for me as I’m still not quite sure what that is (lol) or how it works… wish I did, but I’ve enjoyed reading from you. Allow God to use you to be a blessing to others. Keep moving forward!

  19. Thanks for dropping by my world *giggles*. Didn’t even realize I had a like button on my blog. I’m new to this and what you may call a tech virgin.

    Your intro is such an interesting one. It has captured me and I’m definitely gonna subscribe!

    Looking forward to your posts.

    Blessings and miracles!

  20. Excellent intro. The worst part about no busy signal is no down time. People expect to be able to reach you any time day or night.

    Remember party lines? Had to add this. A friend of mine brought them up the other day, and I stopped his story in its tracks. Party lines! I can’t remember the last time I thought of a party line. For the youngsters who might be reading this, google “party line.” A bit of telecommunication history.

    If you’d call me, you would get a busy signal because I can’t handle three-way calling. 😉
    Your blog seems interesting, and wish I had more time to read all the good stuff out there.

    I rarely meet people with a degree in Geography; I have a B.S. in Geography. I thought that if I majored in Geography I could at least read a map and save myself from my poor sense of direction.

    Writing about topics that help you is a great way to heal… I do the same. I am my 81 yr old mom’s care giver. She has a crazy form of Dementia; Lewy Bodies Dementia. It’s often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s. It’s much different.

    Writing my blog has helped me to cope with the pain of watching my mother die as I help her with daily living activities. Because of my blog and the folks who follow me, I am a stronger person and believe that everything is possible if we believe that we can.

    Happy to meet you Morris.

    • nobusysignal says:

      Thank you for your feed back. I have Never heard of Lewy Bodies Dementia. Your statement ” watching my mother die as I help her with daily activities” deeply touched me. My mom will be 92 In June (Lord willing) I understand your pressure, God bless you richly.

  24. Human Factor says:

    Everyone has a story and some hurt more than others. But one human being can make a difference, even if it’s only to one person. Thank you for reaching out, Morris. Looking forward to reading your future blogs.

    Nice work Moe I will be back often to hear the truth that you speak

    Morris, I’ve found that it’s great that we can have an open forum like this to express ourselves and to find out that others are listening by the feedback we receive back from them. You’re a great writer bro. Keep up the good work brother. Sorry that on today I am just getting here for the first time. It was your message about Helen that drew me to this. You know that I mean well.

    It was difficult at best to come here earlier because of feelings of “past issues” but one thing “I” have to remember is this…… If God is to pardon me for my mistakes I first have to be bigger than the egotistic reservations I have that are fueled from “my own” opinions “if you will” by that psychological defensive lineman staring at me across the line of scrimmage who looks like & is my twin. I can’t allow him to make me go four downs and out on every series in other words. We all have a right in other words to do what we are willing to stand before God for to resolve and make changes in our lives that work for us. Outside of blasphemy and suicide to my knowledge there is nothing that he won’t pardon and forgive. If he is able to do that for us then why don’t we realize that we need to mirror what he does for us towards others.

    May God Bless you and Helen in your new Life and bring divine healing to her body this day I proclaim and decree it.

    Your Bro jmw

  27. Mary Ann says:

    your thoughts and wisdom are very real, and that is to be applauded. Yes, you are right many things in life, of course it does serve our own selves…but, what a blessing when it benefits another human being. I will continue to read your blogs and may the good god present you with more energy and love to continue. blessings in your marriage , and

  29. I thank you Morris for sharing a part of your life with us. It took God to help me get through so many things in my past, as well as my now. I won’t let go of him ever, because of him, I know I can make it. I’m still going through issues, but I thank him for continually helping to carry me. You and your family, I pray, continually Be Blessed.

  30. Rick Upshaw says:

    Looks to me like you’re off to a great start, Morris. I found your blog from a referral from Facebook about your “Leave Well Enough Alone” post. FANTASTIC! Keep up the great work!

    Regards,

    Rick Upshaw

  31. In truth, what I’ve read on your blog is kind of a refreshing change to what one finds elsewhere on the internet. Even though some of your posts are sort of short, you have some great unique content. I checked out that “Leave Well Enough Alone” post mentioned by a previous commenter (above). After getting off the floor from laughing so hard, I showed that to others in our office, and they had the same reaction. You’ve definitely got some fans here on the Ryan Reynolds Workout staff!
