Mother's Day

Mother’s Day.
The very term brings a flood of conflicting emotions. Joy at the blessing of spending time with my mom, and at the blessing of a wonderful mother-in-law. Praise and thanksgiving when I think about my spiritual moms.
Then a deep ache because we never had children. Even though we know it’s God’s plan, and His plan is always good, it still hurts.

Every Voice Matters

In response to people's responses about the election, I have been posting thoughts on Facebook. Since everyone is not on Facebook, thought I'd collect them and post them here, too. I encourage all of you to pray, and to speak out for righteousness when given the chance. 
Every voice matters.

"Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city."
(Proverbs 16:32, NIV)

Steward the Gift
