This Disciple whom Jesus loved, this Disciple who is going to betray Jesus, who are these people? I had a professor in college who suggested that we are meant to place our names in their places.

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 While Christmas Day is behind us and the twelve days of Christmas are over, the message of Christmas is not. Heaven and Earth do meet. The Holy is with and within us.

Figuring out what to do with them meant getting rid of some things and moving many others and creatingContinue reading “HOPE IS HERE! 10.29.2020”
I just had to do it. I simply could not sit and work. Not until I moved my desk to a new spot which meant moving several other pieces of furniture and other adjustments. Sometimes, I just have to do it. I realized this morning that I needed more than just a physical rearranging; IContinue reading “REARRANGING FURNITURE AND LIFE”
