Life Is Like ….

Since God formed the dust of the earth into the body of Adam and breathed life into him, mankind has pondered the meaning of it all.

No “L”? No Christ?

Are You Ready For The Second Super Bowl Of 2013?

Not quite two months ago Super Bowl XLVII  was played in New Orleans, Louisiana.  I don’t understand why they insist on using Roman numerals, the Roman Empire fell in 476 AD, but there it is. On the field were the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49′ers, the game resulted in a win for the […]

Of Discernment

Have you ever read or seen something and alarm bells went off in your head that something was wrong? Maybe you couldn’t quite put your finger on it, maybe you knew what it was right away; or maybe you knew what it was and needed to ponder it a bit. What you are experiencing is […]
