God’s Wedding Day Prep

This morning as I peer outside on my deck and I see the fog, the wet ground, and the amazing growth of me and my son’s flowers garden, I am thankful for the rain. One week away from my outdoor wedding I see rain as just another preparation for that big day. While we scurryContinue reading “God’s Wedding Day Prep”

You want to be great, but do you want to be a blessing?

Genesis 12:2 “And I will make of you a great nation and I will bless you and I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” We all want to be great don’t we?

A Thief Called Fear

Walking in Faith; Seeing Your Change

Last night, I went to bed with a somber spirit. Drained of work, my profession, my office, all I could think of was wanting to see a professional change but at a minimum a new job change. The most draining part was that I could not “see” it. This morning just as I was beginningContinue reading “Walking in Faith; Seeing Your Change”

Yesterday while driving to work, the story of Jesus feeding 5000 with 5 loaves of bread and two fish was pulling on my heart and weighing on my mind.
