Until We Meet Again

One week ago tonight we received a text message that Ray Wells, our dear friend for many years, had collapsed and stopped breathing.

See You Around

This past Sunday at about 1:30 am a dear friend went home to be with the Lord.

2011–A look Back 2012–A Look Forward

Twelve Days of Christmas

I’m passing on a post from Amy Deardon, a writer “friend” of mine. Even though we’ve never met, we’ve shared many emails.  I look forward to someday meeting her in person.  She has an amazing story of how she came to the Lord.  She ha written a very fun book that is a mix ofRead moreRead more

Let us Never Forget

We should never forget the men and women of law enforcement and the firefighters who sacrificed their lives to help others.  We should never forget the men and women of our armed forces who fought for our freedom. YesterdayRead moreRead more
