The Source

Now this post will deviate somewhat from the typical ones of late in that I will not be addressing the Philippines trip memoir or using it as a spiritual diving board. What I would like to discuss with you all is about the source of all truth.… Read the rest

Isaiah 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

Work to be Done

There is always work to be done. How you do it depends on where you are. Where you are influences what you have. What you have has bearing on how fast it can be done. In some places, work will be automated.… Read the rest

A Smile to Remember

A picture worth a thousand words. (If only I knew a thousand to describe it.) She is standing with her arm stretched out towards you with the biggest smile you have ever seen on a child. Between her little fingers is a bubble wand.  … Read the rest
