God’s Will As A No-Brainer

God’s Will As A No-Brainer

We Christians spend too much time asking ‘What Is God’s Will for My Life?’  That’s my honest opinion.  I am a pensive, intentional person.  I’m not one to spontaneously do.  (And I’m married to the antithesis of spontaneous).  But I venture that many of us think too hard and too long and too much about the pros and … Read More

Easter Praises

It’s Easter, and this is my tribute.  I praise you for coming, for living, for knowing, for giving and showing.
