Remove Our Mask

Halloween has always been one of my favorite times of year. The crispness of the air, the aroma of the fall season, and of course, the costumes, masks, make up and anything else you need to pretend to be someone else or something else. Well, in real life, there are some that wear masks every […]

Scary Paths

Acts 3:19,20 (NLT) My granddaughter and her friends went to a Halloween attraction this pas weekend that is well known for being pretty scary.

Solid Ground

Psalm 62:6 When my parents divorced, I was just getting ready to go away to college. At the same time, my mother was battling an illness that most people do not understand. My brother and I felt as though we were alone. I found it hard to be away at college while my brother was […]

This Is Who I Am

Titus 1:2, Romans 8:1-3, Isaiah 53:4-6 Prideful. Arrogant. Lustful. Impure. Greedy. Envious. Depressed. Angry. Foolish. Distrustful. Direspectful. Slothful. Lazy. Lying. Faithless. Godless.

Thanks For Noticing

Isaiah 38:16 I recently bumped into an old friend at the grocery store. Although it had been years since we saw each other, it was great reminiscing and reconnecting.

New Specs

Psalm 119:18 NLT It was time again for my yearly eye exam. I knew it was due because things were getting blurry and out of focus. After the exam, Doc confirmed that sure enough I needed new glasses. I would be getting my new ones in 3-5 days. I was excited when they finally came, […]


Ephesians 4:32 NLT Author Anthony Douglas Williams once said; “Kindness is not an act.
