A friend of mine this morning sent me a voice note in which creative writers directed an audio scene capturing the trial of Jesus. In this recording, the news anchor shared that Jesus died from asphyxiation through crucifixion among other things. We are somewhat familiar with the process which led up to our Lord's death … Continue reading Ultimate Sacrifice
"O God, you are my God; EARLY will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is." Psalm 63:1 "Mom, can you take me to the Apple store - my phone fell in the toilet" That was the first message I … Continue reading First thing
Have you ever had a friend ask you what's been new in your life? Especially after they have shared that their life has had "major" changes that are taking place.
