Last year was the first year I chose a single word to define my year. Last year’s word was “Generous.” Yes I will still be generous this year; however, for this year my word will be “Focus.” I always say that I am a slow learner but as I have crossed over into my second […]

Someday is not a Day and neither is Tomorrow

I have to admit I used to be the king of someday. I would love to wile away my time dreaming about someday or tomorrow. When I was very young my Aunt Tootie (Everyone needs an Aunt Tootie) would ask me to spend the night. Being rather attached to my parents I would always respond […]

Doubt Is Not A Badge of Honor

Several weeks ago I was listening to a popular podcast. The host was interviewing a young man who states he was once a Christian but now he is an atheist.
