You are probably asking why would I do such a thing, and I share with you the story behind the pitcher. … Continue reading The Story of the Broken Pitcher
“When we go to Florida, angels will protect our plane”. Olivia said that a few weeks ago. I didn’t even know she really knew what an angel was. I mean they are in some of the Bible stories we read to her but, I am pretty sure we have never told her what their roles … Continue reading Who Is God?
New on Candidly Christian Have you ever missed something? Have you almost missed something that God had before you? An opportunity? A blessing? A gift? I probably miss them more than I would like to.

Have you ever gotten a perfect gift? I am not a big fan of gifts. I really don’t like to open them, because I am so particular. It is even harder for me to open gifts in a large group.

Sometimes I think his … Continue reading What 2020 Taught Me About 20/20 Vision
