I Don’t Feel So Merry

It’s Christmas time.  Yesterday we had snow, just a light dusting, and it was beautiful.  There is a chill in the wind today, it makes me want to stay home by the fire and drink hot cocoa.  I have been looking at Christmas decorations, but they don’t seem quiet as sparkly as they used too.  I… Read More ›

Understanding the Beattitudes

I grew up in church and have listened to the Sermon on the Mount for most of my life and still wondered at the various interpretations of some of the verses.  These verses are located in Matthew 5:3 and 5 if you want to look them up.  For instance: Blessed are the poor in spirit,… Read More ›

Be Like Water
