The Challenge

“The Challenge” is what I’ve got on my blog calendar for today.  Hmmm…when in doubt go to scripture!!! Clearly, I don’t have a clue what I was thinking when I came up with this topic, but this one in particular can be used for an enormous amount of things we deal with in life. Between […]


Last week I wrote about how we should praise God no matter what we are going through… I was shocked and a little saddened that there are many others going through some dark and desolate times right now.
