We Have All Been So Blessed

  “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.”  (Colossians 2:6-7)  I make no apologies … I am an avid coffee drinker!  The day just doesn’t seem to start […]

How Frayed Are The Cords Which Bind Us To This Earth …

A Wake Up Call Like No Other

Treading Painful Waters …

“Save me, O God!  For the waters have come up to my neck, I sink in deep mire, Where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, Where the floods overflow me.” (Psalm 69:1-2, NKJV) The opening words of this psalm are the words expressed by David … words of desperation … words […]
