Staying Present

Anyone who knows me know that I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!

In fact, 4 people posted memes on my Facebook wall, celebrating that November means it’s time to begin the Christmas fun!

Hide & Go Fish

..When I look at the life of Jesus, I do not see someone who craved a safe and danger-free life.  I see a Man with an all-out passion to love lost souls and bring them into right relationship with God, despite the persecution and judgment that He faced...
