Is it really impossible? April 20, 2021 Tuesday

I catch myself sometimes dreading the day ahead. This morning was like that. I had two hearings and had not received some of the information that I needed for either one of them. I got the information for the first one about five minutes before the hearing started. I got the information for the otherContinue reading “Is it really impossible? April 20, 2021 Tuesday”

For the moms4.14.2021Wednesday

KEEP PRAYING THURSDAY 4.8.2021

Don’t give up. That is one of the clear messages of The Bible; don’t give up. Life is a construction zone, sometimes very full of mess and disappointment, but God is the builder and can convert any failed area into something new.
