Reminders from God’s Calendar

Monday night before bed, I reviewed my monthly goals. Goals are easier to chew when you take a bite each day. Say no to overindulgence, my friends. I said to myself, “When I wake up, I’m going to do this, this and this.” Gratefully, the sun rose and I had another chance to strive towardsContinue reading “Reminders from God’s Calendar”

Dreams and Nightmares

As little kids, we are always encouraged to dream. In fact, to DREAM BIG.

We Need Each Other

“Don’t catch feelings!” seems to be the line for the millennial generation.  The phrase is subjective; it’s interpretation varies by the individual. I’m more interested in how we have ALLOWED society to corrupt our minds to go against the very reason God created man and woman.  Each made distinctively to fulfill His purpose but bothContinue reading “We Need Each Other”
