Do You Swear?

Day after day people say, “I swear to God” –  which amuses me, since so many of those same fine folks would say they either don’t believe in God or have very little to do with Him.  Yet His name continues to be used as a measuring stick for people’s promise that they are telling…

Reflections

I love to learn.  I was one of the strange young ones that looked forward to school because I was fascinated with the new information presented to me.  Learning through change has never frightened me, but has intrigued me, as it has been the spice of life.  I don't like to be bored, so I…

Pray For France

Once again another senseless act of terrorism has occurred; this time in France.

Trusting The Process

Trusting The Process has got to be one of the most, if not THE most, difficult things in life.  Since we can’t control the vast majority of situations that occur – we can ONLY control our reactions to them – when we are confronted with challenges, we often “freak out”.  The words in this picture summarize…
