Because He Lives

How sweet to hold a newborn baby, And feel the pride and joy he gives; But greater still the calm assurance: This child can face uncertain days because He Lives! Those words come to my mind often as I see so many of our new babies. They have been a constant thought as I have…

Bring It Here

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” – Matthew 11:28 Having two girls, it has been my mission in life to make sure that they are independent. I want them to be able to do things for themselves. I want them to not have to rely…

  Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.  – Matthew 5:8 Many people today wonder why they can’t see God or the things that he does. The answer is in Matthew and it’s pretty clear. Jesus tells the people that those who are able to see God, whether in this life…

Growing up in Mexico, I was exposed to soccer (futbol) all the time until I heard of the Cowboys, an American football team, who instead of kicking the ball would throw it.  They didn’t play with a round ball but rather an oval shaped ball. One time they put it on TV.  When it came…
