See You In A Little While

See You In A Little While

Since the beginning of the year, it seems I have attended funeral after funeral. My heart breaks for the families because I know the feeling of loss they are experiencing. The pain is almost more than you can bear. Many of you know, I lost my Mom to cancer in 2009.

Your Grace Still Amazes Me!

Your Grace Still Amazes Me!

I will always be amazed at God's grace! Why he chooses to forgive and love me is often more than my heart and mind can comprehend. But He is so faithful!

Today, I hope you … [Read more...]
