Have You Left the Wrong Path Wide Open?

Last Sunday my pastor had to do some housekeepin’ fussin’ at our congregation before he started his sermon.

Disappointment with God Part 1

 “All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful,” (Psalm 25:10 NIV). I sat on the floor playing a card game with my young son. It was shaping up to be one of the best summers ever.

Be Still and Know

In him we live and move and have our being, (Acts 17:28 NIV). (I posted this blog a few months ago, but wanted to post it again as you head into the crazy holiday season. Here we go!)
