A thank You from all my parts and pieces…

Just as the members of the church of God work together (or should) to complete the work of Christ, so do the members of my own body work for the good of the Lord. Today a few of them wanted to say “Thank You Jesus!” The head said – thank You for giving me things […]

When shortfalls become long falls…

Genesis 28:11-19 The story goes that Jacob, the grandson of the friend of God, Abraham is quite the deceiver. He takes advantage of his brother Esau and takes his birthright, and then later his blessing and inheritance by deceiving his father Isaac in his old age, and for his own safety is sent away to […]
