Seeking Commitment? Or Covenant?

Often I ask for your input In doing so I told you that coming soon,we would be undertaking a discussion about commitments. But wait,… there’s more.

Wise Living

Welcome back as we are continuing, now on week 13 of our  extended odyssey, having undertaken a search and rescue mission for wisdom.

Out Of My Head

Wow it’s Friday already? Seems like it was just Thursday.
