Roses and thorns are both a part of life.

It's all about perspective. The list of the good will usually have us truly grateful for the life we have been given...even if the negative thorns are there as well. Look for the beauty of the roses.

We are not created to live life all on our own.

Life is tough and we face many things that can wear us down. There is no way around this.... but it doesn't have to keep us down! Psalm 55:22 So here’s what I’ve learned through it all: leave all your cares and anxieties at the feet of the Lord, and measureless grace will strengthen you.... Continue Reading →

God’s Not Done With You

During this pandemic I think we forget sometimes that life is still going on for people outside. Loved ones are sick. Loved ones are dying of natural causes or tragedies "before their time". Loved ones are addicted. People are homeless. Mental illness is ramped up right now. How will bills get paid? Who is telling... Continue Reading →
