It’s Time

The news is dominated by all that has taken place in Afghanistan. Al-Qaeda soldiers have swooped in and for their religion and love for their country, they have gained control of Afghanistan. What they are doing to their own country, men, and women is hideous, disgusting, and Satanic. They have been out all night, forsaking…

Pray and Trust

Have you ever prayed and prayed for God to resolve an issue, only to have to wait and wait and wait?  I wonder what it was like for Sarah who prayed for a child, not a nation; just one child and she had to wait twenty-five years. Even though she was forced to wait, it…

God told him to leave friends and family and go to a place where hardly anyone lived. He waited twenty-five years…

Challenged but Content

Just for a moment, who would have imagined a tiny invisible virus indiscriminately making our world topsy-turvy. The COVID-19 crisis has brought several hardships; restrictions on usual freedoms, personal and economic financial challenges, emotionally vulnerabilities, thousands of lost loved ones, broken marriages, 24/7 parenting, hospitals overwhelmed, virtual graduations….the list goes on.  Piling on top of…
