There have been several studies recently about the effect of isolation and loneliness. The Covid Pandemic drove many from work spaces and social settings leaving many feeling alone. We were not alone… “You are never left alone when you are alone with God.”(Woodrow Kroll) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not […]

More on gratitude… This quote by John Maxwell will be as deep and meaningful as we want it to be. Or, it can be as inconsequential as we want it to be. “What we appreciate appreciates. What we depreciate depreciates.”(John Maxwell) “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”(Colossians 4:2) Keith MadisonSCORE International

It’s so easy to get caught up in the negativity that’s all around us. When you fill up your vehicle’s gas’s tank, buy groceries or watch the news we are faced with the reality that there’s certainly some negative stuff going on. But if we dwell on it, the negativity will take root in our […]

We should honor God with our work. If we approach each day with gratitude and ask God to bless our efforts, then our energy and our attitudes will set us apart. We will accomplish more and be more winsome while doing it. “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”(Proverbs […]

God doesn’t promise to shield us from all disappointments. He does promise to walk through them with us if we will only extend our hand for Him to hold. “In the middle of pain, disappointment, and suffering it is faith that whispers: This isn’t permanent.” (Unknown) “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, […]

Most Americans enjoy a long weekend, a baseball game, a home project or a cookout on Memorial Day. It would be a tragedy if we didn’t remember those who haven given their life for us. “Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.” […]

We see the pain on every news channel…School shootings, street violence, racism and war. No doubt, we can do far better. But we will never fix it all because there are some hearts and minds that are disturbed and confused and some even bent toward hate. We have too many single mothers trying to do […]
