Change of Perspective

Routine is an order of doing things that work smoothly to get to a desired end. A rut is more of an autopilot setting of moving through life without really seeing what’s going on around you...

Sadder Day

I’ve always had a soft place in my heart for this day. Saturday. The 2nd day. Right in the middle of two of the most important days for a Christian. It’s the day after the vicious murder of Jesus Christ and the day before our salvation became a reality.    Saturday is the waiting room. The dark. The unknown. The quiet. Many times life can feel like...

The Thrill of Hope

Love is noted to be the greatest out of faith, hope, and love (1 Cor 13:13), but because I love you so much and have faith in the power of hope, I am wishing hope for you in 2016.   Hope is enchanting and thrilling.

Cruise Control

I’ve been driving the same sports car for the past 9 years. It’s my baby. I also love its gas pedal. I’ve only received one speeding ticket before and it was when I was pretty young (you live and learn).
