I've been thinking about light and dark and shadows lately . This is one of those topics that I know will be with me for the rest of my life. I love the thought that there is no darkness at all in God. There is absolutely nothing that can be hid... Read more
Small Beginnings
Friday, April 06, 2012      1 comments

Saturday, March 31, 2012      1 comments

It is God's goodness that draws us to repentance. How can you not want to love someone who does nothing but shower us with good things out of a pure heart? I think about all the wonderful things God has done for me time and time again and it bri... Read more
Choose Wisely, My Friend
