  • She walks with a painful limp, feet are blistered, legs burn with every step and her clothes are battle worn. Uncovered skin sluggishly bleeds from intruding jungle brush.

Did I ask for too much? Did I miss God on this one?   You see, I honestly felt 2014 would be my year so I declared it boldly…

  •  I’ve heard it for years. The “Blame Game”. Family, friends and co-workers blame, blame, blame. I did it for many years.  But what good does it do? Does it somehow solve problems? Does it strengthen relationships? Does it insure a strong future for you or others? Of course not.  So why…

  • Twas the night before Christ was born and all through the barn,  all the creatures were stirring wondering who these two were. Mary was frightened and Joseph unsure of what the heck God was doing. It seemed like a blur.  They had to leave home  to give birth in a barn.   It didn't make…
