Sunday Morning

  I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. ~John 12:46

As sweet and southern as sweet tea and cobbler, she did not disappoint! I’d love to be able to see a video screen with […]


Allow me to introduce you to the bane of my existence… No silly, not Ray….look a little closer…. Um, yeah. The sling. Ray had surgery on his rotator cuff a few weeks ago. I’m not going to lie. It’s been hard doing everything myself. Even the little things, the things that I’ve taken for granted that […]

Sunday Morning

 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.–Colossians 3:15
