Friends First

Friends First

It's sad to me that during the past few years, I've lost friends over politics. They've shunned me and said they couldn't be my friend because I felt a certain way. Don't be like them. Love your friends despite your differences. There is more to life than opinions. ...

Laughter as Medicine

I love to laugh! We all do, right? I think we need more laughter these days. I read today that we have to be careful how and when we laugh so we don't malign a group or person. Um, okay. I agree with that. There are ways that laughter can be used to hurt or destroy,...

This is an awesome quote! "If you ever have someone argue 'Christianity is a white man’s religion.' Bring them to Acts 8. God called Phillip from a place of fruitful ministry to a desert road to share with a man from Ethiopia. History will show that while Europeans...

Gulping Humility

Gulping Humility

Acts 17:22-23 ...People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you...
