A Day of Prayer 

A Day of Prayer 

There is so much going on in the world right now, we need to stop and pray. I’m not sure what that looks like for you. Maybe a day of prayer. Maybe a fast. Maybe jump starting a habit of making prayer a daily habit like brushing your teeth. You do brush your teeth daily, […]

Irma is Not God’s Punishment

Irma is Not God’s Punishment

This happens every time a major disaster happens. Some crank — sometimes a more high-profile crank than others — claims that the disaster is God’s “punishment” for some perceived infraction on the part of whoever’s getting slammed at the moment.

A Good Run

A Good Run

Sunday I went for a 5-mile run that ended up being 5.5 miles. It wasn’t my fastest run but it was one of my best. I even had a running partner to the end of our street (pictured above). Her total run was a half mile, not bad for a 9-year old. The day was perfect, […]
