What Is The Goal In Trials?

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

Our ladies Bible study at church just started a series on James. The lady leading the study said this yesterday, “What is your goal in trials? Is it to change it and make it go away? Our goal should be to know God better through the trial.” I really liked that. I believe that I […]

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Well, for lots of reasons. You know I happen to love him and there’s this huge thing. However, I was thinking today one of the reasons I keep him is he’s so handy! He fixes all sorts of things and just seems to know how to do it right away. He fixed my clock too. […]
