Own It!

  There comes a time in your life where you need to take ownership. Your faith has to move from being your momma’s or great grandmomma’s faith, to being your own. We can’t always ride on the coat tails of their faith and believe we’re covered. This doesn’t make us good enough. We need to […]

One God

This morning God reminded me that there is One God, and he has called us to be together but has made us each unique.    “You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, […]

Restored

The other day while adding more body fill to my old Dodge Dakota I was thinking about the joy it’s brought me and the lessons I’ve learned in vehicle repair. Almost 3 months ago this dark beauty in all it’s broken and rusted glory entered my life. Instantly I was proud of it and felt […]
