Recently, I have been studying and writing about Jesus and the journey he leads us on. As I go, he is giving me object lessons in my own life.
It's amazing how you can forget the simple things, at times. I find myself in the middle of a project he has assigned to me - writing about how Jesus makes disciples.
I'm at a point where Jesus teaches his followers to Listen attentively to God; and I find myself struggling to be a good listener. So, I had been asking the Lord to show me… Continue

I got a cut on my hand the other day, after a few minutes the bleeding stopped and a scab formed. Got me thinking about blood clotting. Did you know that blood clotting is a seven step process, if it misses a step, you would continue bleeding out? I guess my question regarding evolution is; before the seven step process "evolved", how did any living creature, man or animal survive a cut? Just a thought...

Romans 4 gives an excellent account of how we are saved. Not by works but by faith and it traces that relationship to Justification back to Abraham.
"Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered;

I have no NEW resolutions, just the same old ones that ignore most of the time. Our NEW semester of homeschooling begins in a couple of weeks and I'm excited… Continue
