Best Day Ever … what will I see?

The Power of God - what difference does it make to you?

The Power of God—what difference does it make to you?  Ephesians 1.19

Good Day! 

You live your life every day.  You get up, wipe the sleep out of your eyes, have your coffee, and put your pants on, just like everyone else who is starting their day … then, you head out the door to work or school, beginning the machinations of managing another day.  So,…

Thoughts of Beauty … and ugliness

Thoughts of Beauty … and ugliness.

Lots of thoughts this day … my head and heart are full. Honestly, I have to ask—what is wrong with people? Seriously. On a long drive, I found myself channel surfing, when I heard a familiar name, and stopped to listen … ‘Pastor Rick Warren’ … wait, what? What could this be about? I knew that Pastor…

Hi.

Jesus said the greatest command was to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  He did not say ‘love God with this little leftover portion of yourself that you have allotted to God, or…
