PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Today is my son’s 21st birthday. Once upon a time, during what I call “The Invasion of the Body Snatcher Years,” I foolishly thought that I’d stop worrying about him once he was an adult. I now laugh at the idiocy of that naive thought… I worry more than ever. At this point, it’s a daily surrender to God.

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• My son’s birthday is next Saturday, but I gave him his gift yesterday. I took him to adopt a new cat.

All joking aside, we get excited about … Continue reading 1.5.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: God & Nutella
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• It’s the home stretch… One more week to get ready for Christmas. Are you ready? Hopefully, you’re better prepared than I am. As much as I wanted to shop local this year, a lack of time coupled with a foot of snow sent me to Amazon for my Christmas shopping. And for the first time, Amazon has me worried. Normally, … Continue reading 12.17.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Christmas Countdown
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• When it comes to our world today, many claim they are out to “Live My Best Life.” I get the concept. We have one life to live, make the most of it.
