Struggling Through Forgiveness

Going through life being imperfect, I’m bound to offend others; bound to annoy and irritate. I’ve done this countless times and not always on purpose.

Filling up on Cocoa Krispies

“Mom…I’m hungry!…I’m starving!!!” In our society, we do not know true hunger. We sometimes skip breakfast and by noon our tummies roar.

My son, Jonathan, has always loved music.  When he was small and sitting in the high chair, the best way to keep him concentrated on his … Continue reading

From Wretch to Treasure

This week we are attending District Council (Pastor meetings). We meet together; focusing on business matters, but more importantly, focusing time to rekindle relationship with others in ministry and refreshing our hearts through worship and Word. This morning, we were able to share communion together. My heart was touched by this particular song: How Deep … Continue reading
