Refine


Lent Challenge - "Refine" I thought today I would share a song with you that I learned a couple of years ago which speaks to me on different levels each time I hear or sing it.

Forgive


Lent Challenge - "Forgive"   "Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a permanent attitude" - Martin Luther King Jr  

Questions


Lent Challenge - "Questions" Who? Who decided that women deserve a pat on the head for a single day each year, calling it “International Women’s Day”? What? What do they think women do on the other 364 days of the year? Why? Do women fall for it year after year? When? Are we going to... Continue Reading →

Fear
