That Time I Lost It At The Grocery Store

“Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.” –Proverbs 25:28 I was out running errands with the children in tow. We returned some books to the library and checked out some more. Then, we proceeded to go to our local grocery store for a few essentials. As I was […]

Have Mercy On Me

I told you if you wouldn’t listen you would fail. I told you that if you go that direction, you would get lost! I told you that if you moved there that you wouldn’t have anyone. I told you to watch your money better. I told you to not play in the street. I told […]

Compassion – Life’s Gem

Compassion. The one word that I believe helps define who I am as a person. Compassion towards others is something that I have always had and I have a hard time trying to understand how some people just do not have compassion towards others. In my Bible (if you read my articles you will know […]

A family friend of ours passed away tragically in a motorcycle accident two days ago, and although it’s been years since I’ve seen him, his death has rocked my world, as far away and removed as it is now. I hate even to say that, and pretend that I can have any part in a […]
