Where Does Your Peace Come From?

Several years ago, we went on our first mission trip. The place was Costa Rica.

Thankful for Healing

Went to visit my brother today. Our day wasn’t your typical Thanksgiving get-together, but it was a true blessing in many ways. Guess that’s all that matters.  Rather than cooking all morning and trying to figure out how to keep everything in one piece after an hour-long drive,  we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving at Applebee’s – […]
