Hope for the Hurting
Henry Ford has been quoted as saying, "Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right." There is so much truth in that. If I think I can do something, I am likely to try, and more often than not, with enough time, practice, perseverence, I...read more
The media has given us countless story lines about misfits. Just think of Rudolph...the reindeer with the shiny nose who was laughed at and not allowed to play in all the reindeer games. Or what about that lovable, if not clueless Charlie Brown. Within his own...read more
In my estimation, I would have to say that friendship is one of God's greatest gifts. I just spend an extended weekend with a long time friend and it just felt like new life was breathed into me! It was comfortable and easy. No expectations. I didn't even have...read more
