Grace

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

I’m reading a book called Transforming Grace by Jerry Bridges.

Tellin’ the Truth~A Day Late

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Sorry I’m late again. I’ve been feeling discombobulated lately! I started the week feeling very stressed out for no apparent reason and I’ve been slacking a bit.

Thank you Veterans

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

I heard this song years ago. The video at the bottom isn’t the original music video, but it’s a good one. Take a minute to listen. I know this song is for veterans and Memorial Day is to remember those who died, but I still say thank you! Thank you to the families of those […]
