Just wait till your father gets home

Just wait till your father gets home How many of you have ever heard or said yourself… “Just wait till your father gets home!” Thought so!  I heard it growing up…I think every parent that draws breath has! When dad would get home, we’d all act like angels!  It was...
Just Be Jesus

Just Be Jesus

Just Be Jesus All this week my mind has been on society as a whole. There is a steady decay in morality. This might be a little heavy just before Thanksgiving. And with that holiday just around the corner I want to mention that we are told to be Thankful in...
Someday is right now

Someday is right now

Someday is right now I love Christmas music! We start early in my house. And by early I mean we started two weeks ago at the beginning of November! Our tree is up! Lights are strung around the house. There’s the smell of Christmas with notes of evergreen and cinnamon....

Failure is not Final

Failure is not Final Failing stinks.   I really don’t like it.  It frustrates me.  I feel like I get stuck you know, like spinning tires in mud – as if I can’t move forward again.  My gears get all gummed up with self-pity.  What is truly sad is that I would...
Trust the Path
