Armor of God

Are you busy this time of year? LOL It is the night of December 17th as I write this and time is rushing towards one week from now, Christmas Eve.

"I Hold You in My Heart"

Clean Heart

I got about ten minutes into my day this morning when a really scary, and sadly, all too common thought hit my mind. Every thought I had up to that point was only about me.

Why do I just expect my grumpy kid to be h...

Marriage 2

Word of the Day

“Do everything without complaining and arguing….” Philippians 2:14a Guys: There is a question that I am a bit hesitant to ask Diana because I am afraid her answer would be yes. My reluctant question is “Diana, do you think I complain too much?” The reason I am afraid she would say yes is there never seems to be a shortage of things for me to...
