Men, Do not be afraid to let your guard down with those you love most. Jesus should be included in that group. Sing your heart out to God, be willing to make a fool of your self. All you saints! Sing your hearts out to God ! Thank him to his face! He gets angry…(Read More)

An Honored Position

I came across this snippet of thought a few months back, from the time nearly four years ago when I had a two-year-old and an almost one-year-old keeping me very busy. Now, I’m still busy, in a different sort of way. Those two are older, but still have their definite…(Read More)

In Genesis 17:20-21, God is discussing His covenant with Abraham. Around this part of the story He is informing Abraham that he will have a son from Sarah. We know the story that he laughs at God and God tells him to ironically name his son laughter or Isaac. What I very seldom…(Read More)

We trekked a couple hours away to attend my grandfather’s 75th birthday party last weekend. It’s so wonderful to have some guarantees in being a part of this family. For one, there will most definitely always be food there. (Don’t even think about eating beforehand and don’t bother to bring anything…(Read More)

It’s basic: green is go¬†and red is stop. My little backseat drivers managed to grasp that concept before the age of three. And the idea works very well with things such as traffic flow, but on other things in life, not so much. It’s so ingrained into our reasoning that when we…(Read More)
