Even though everything has changed, nothing’s changed.

We longed for the day when we could begin ditching the masks and recognizing faces again. We looked forward with great anticipation to getting back to church, attending sporting events and concerts, and sharing our homes with family and friends again. Some of us couldn't wait to get back to our regular dinner dates at... Continue Reading →

How Making Coffee Changed My Life

"Do nothing out of selfish ambitions or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others."~ Phil. 2: 3-4 It's not like I had always been selfish with my time.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

A Closet without a Door

Like everyone else we had the crazy uncle who everyone thought weird, and there were a couple other stories about a few cousins who seemed a couple chicken McNuggets short of a Happy Meal. But us?
