Play Hard In The Water

I could kill any plant.  Even a cactus is not safe with me. I’m not the neighbor you ask to water your garden while on vacation.  Come to think of it…no one does.

This summer began with goals of being a significant one. My list was written early May. Spiritual, physical and relational goals for myself and my family. However, when making my plans, I could have never dreamed just how significant this summer would be … in 1,000 unexpected ways. The heart of man plans his ways, … Continue reading

What Hinders You?

What is the biggest distraction between you and a deeper relationship with God? What consumes your thought life? Are you one to make “promises” to God and break them? I am so sick and tired of anything competing for my affection with Christ. He is so much better than “whatever it is” that might hinder … Continue reading
