So Rude? Or?

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

A few days ago, I shared my embarrassing story of the situation with my online points. I KNEW that they were stealing from me and was ready to act upon what I KNEW. Well, I ended up having egg on my  face. I thought of another time this happened to me. I hesitate to share […]

Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Most of us have read a book or heard a sermon about the potter. It is an excellent illustration of how God molds and makes us into vessels […]

When I was a very small girl, my parents took me to a lake. My mom said the lake was beautiful and placid that day. Mom and Dad watched me toddle to the edge of the smooth water. The instant I reached the edge, a wave splashed over my head. Mom said I screamed inconsolably […]
