I tease. I like to tease. I tease people that I love. Teasing is my “love language.” Just ask my kids. There are a lot of great things about teasing, joking, ribbing, the kinds of joking around that we do with our family and friends when we’re all having a good time together. But there […]

Don’t Be Afraid, Be Reasonable

The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will […]

Waiting

  “In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; he will do what is just and right in the land. In those days Judah will be saved…  Jeremiah 33:14-16 I had ordered a gift to be delivered and it didn’t come when I expected. Every day […]
