Living in the Fullness of God

Living in FB-2

If ever there was a time to ask ourselves if we are living in the fullness of God, it is now.

However, my next thought is that we should just ask ourselves that question every morning. What better way to commit ourselves each day to living worthy of the calli...

J&M.JPG

Our daughter Maddie, a college senior, was stressing about her serious lack of funds over Christmas break. She had an appendectomy on December 1st and due to complications post-surgery she wasn't able to work all month. I kept telling her, "The Lord knows what you need."
