Lord I Need You

And then it happens. The sudden death of a loved one, possibly even your spouse. The loss of a job. The loss of your home due to catastrophe or finances. Abandonment by family and/or friends. Or possibly the battle with addiction to drugs, alcohol, sex, or even food, money or material things. That shock. That "what do I do now" moment. Continue reading "Lord I Need You".

We Are All On A Journey

We all travel regularly. Sometimes we travel to relatively mundane though necessary places, such as to the grocery store for food, or to a clothing store. Some travel takes us to see our loved ones, family that may be near or far. And, occasionally we travel to exciting places, like the vacation to another city or possibly another country.
