Abounding Joy and Peace

Good Afternoon. This Sunday is different from other Sundays. Instead of rushing to get ready for our church service, we leisurely got ready and watched it online. The kids also had an online service to watch. During this unprecedented time, I have been hanging on to my faith. It has brought me peace and comfort.… Continue reading Abounding Joy and Peace

Hearts Overflowing With Peace and Goodness

Good Afternoon! So, it is day 14 of being home. The news is confusing. Is the country not doing enough to stop the spread of the virus? Or, is the country being too cautious?

God Patiently Waits For Us

Good Morning. We watched Sunday Services online today. Strangely, this is our new normal for an indefinite period of time. I feel like God is trying to get our attention.

No One Knows the Day or Hour

This morning, I received a phone call from the school. Schools are closed today through next week, because of precautions to protect us from the Cornonavirus.

Maybe Our Purpose In Life Is Not So Complex

Good morning. Yesterday was sunny and warm in Virginia. The neighborhood kids happily played and ran outside, soaking in the sun and warmth. I am not a fan of hot weather, but yesterday was in the ¬†mild mid-70's. It was quite nice. Today, it is rainy and chilly, and I cannot get warm. In a… Continue reading Maybe Our Purpose In Life Is Not So Complex
