Those Days When It’s Even Hard to Pray…

Hello, Friend. Today, I want to talk about prayer and those hard days when even praying seems beyond our grasp. As in my last post about keeping Christmas simple, I’m continuing the simple theme in regards to prayer. Prayer is simply communing with God. Simple does not mean unimportant, less than, or less meaningful. In… Read More Those Days When It’s Even Hard to Pray…

When We Think We Know It All, We Know Nothing

I did something new this week. I went back to school. Evidently my brain was due for a workout since, “I used to know this….” has been the catch-phrase of the week.

Talk about adrenaline rush; hiders frantically¬† scattering as the seeker shouts ¬† “one, two, three,… ten; ready or not, here I come!” Stifling nervous giggles with hand over mouth, I’d slip behind a tree, or scurry inside and nestle tight between winter… Read More What Are We Hiding?
