The Power for Marriage
My wife and I
followed the tradition of not seeing each other on the day of the wedding.   So, the moment I first saw Carol as she

"If I Could Just Get Back to Where I Used to Be"
I was talking
to my wife the other day and I found myself frustrated.  I wasn’t frustrated with her, but rather I

past ...

25 Thoughts on Christmas # 24
“For God so love the world that He GAVE
His only Son.”  The happiest people you know are the
most generous people you know .   Show me a generous person and I’ll show you a

has for us.” (1 John

25 Thoughts on Christmas # 7
When God
showed up in Jesus Christ, he was not a pillar of fire, not a tornado, but a
