They make them and use them. 2) People that, with good intentions, make lists but never use them. 3) People that don’t make lists. …

As I was praying this morning, I thought, “What should I do when I want more of God in my life?” As this rolled around inside me, I realized it was easier than I thought. If I eat an apple, I bring it into me, and its substance feeds my body, contributing to my health. …

Are You On Track in 2022?

As we head into warmer temperatures, I’m reminded of the value of shade. On a hot summer day, we seek out a shadow. It may be found under a tree or a beach umbrella or even on the shaded side of a building. When we find it, we know it. We are instantly refreshed. One …

Where Are You From?

A question that often comes up the first time we meet someone is, “Where are you from?” It’s a good question because it may provide context about the person. I have a brother-in-law that grew up in south Georgia. His conversations are filled with “yes, sir, and yes, ma’am.” It’s a courtesy spoken by people …
