A Passionate Life… A Passionate Love

One of the words that has been reverberating in my mind as of late is the word passion.  It’s a word I have long been accustomed to using, but recently have been thinking about it more in my own life.  Here are some of  my thoughts: Most of us will not tolerate (or, at least, are […]

Don’t Waste Your Life…

  “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow?  Your life is like the morning fog – it’s here a little while, then it’s gone (James 4:14).  This has been a very interesting week.  Two deaths and one person hanging on for dear life.  A variance of ages.  Because tragedy and death […]

No Bold Predictions…

2016… My very first post of the New Year. I would like to give a very bold prediction about how I will be more consistent with writing this year… how my passion has returned, and how incredibly excited I am about penning my thoughts.  All of that is true, but I won’t be making any […]

I Am Third…

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Phil 2:3-4). One of the “default wirings” of humankind is the desire to take care of oneself first, before we do […]
