Beautiful

God is teaching me so much about His grace and infinite mercy and kindness lately.  Circumstances are not ideal and they rarely are for our own liking.  As humans we always can think of something, diminutive or grandiose, worth tweaking that would presumably make circumstances just *that* much more pleasant for us, one way or […]

The Vine

I have learned a new song this past week and I am rather ODing on it at this point.  I really like ODing on songs of praise to our God.  I don’t think I can quite do it often enough.  Something tells me I won’t get bored at all with all the constant praise going […]

Cool Lyrics

Do like Switchfoot? I do. They are great musicians and they write thought provoking lyrics that while saying less, they say more than many blatantly Christian music. They don’t spell out creeds or quote scripture very often but they make you think. They have the ability to get down to the details of life that […]
