What if things happened instantaneously? Let's say I wanted to make banana bread. What if, after preparing the correct measurements and portions of the ingredients and mixing it all up, the bread magically appeared before me? Or what if I arrived at a certain country, expecting to have a job, then after sending out resumes, … Continue reading Life Moves in Stages, so Don’t be in Such a Hurry!
In a short while, we will kiss 2015 goodbye and say hello to 2016. How does this make you feel? Are you overcome by excitement, paralyzed by uncertainty and fear, or discouraged by last year's performance? Personally, I feel all three. Somehow in my jungle heart, all three emotions found room.

If his name doesn't ring a bell, go to the end of this post and watch him sing my favorite song of his, "Forgiven and Loved." Seriously, stop. However, if you … Continue reading Jimmy Needham Concert & A Lesson on Appetite

God only knows where I got this absurd idea, and now He tells me to delete it from my system because … Continue reading Coming Clean
