I have created this blog in order to share my faith in Jesus Christ with others. My prayer is that these writings, based on God's Holy Word, will encourage Christians to love and serve others as Jesus Christ loves the church. Further, I will be praying that my words, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, will reach non-believers who may be searching for meaning and purpose in their lives. May they find that Jesus Christ is the only source to fill the emptiness inside their hearts.

"When you demonstrate love to your children, they gain a proper perspective of God. They learn to view the Lord as being a God of love and not wrath."
Quote from The Daily Way.
Children and grandchildren are our most precious assets. The above statement seems extremely accurate to me. Words that are spoken in harshness will often cause irreparable damage. Those on the receiving end of a critical spirited person are left deeply wounded. It is impossible to be a godly role model and give clear vision of who God is when one speaks out of anger. I pray that all reading this will stop and think before they speak. May the words they say be pleasing to the Lord and not damaging to the recipient. There is already enough brokenness in this world.
Prayer: Father God, help each one of us to think before we speak. Give us kind and life building words to say, or help us to say nothing at all. May we model the gentleness of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
