This idea stems from the belief that our behavior causes God to turn from us when we have missed the mark otherwise known as sin. When we get… Continue reading Missing Something?
As I began my morning, seeing an almost full moon and knowing what that represents this week, I began thinking about what happened a little over two thousand years ago today, Good Friday. Once again the question drifted in my thoughts...What If.....and here is what I saw... I could see the dusty road and a… Continue reading What If?

When I had gotten to number two and I said out loud I am completely forgiven, I realized in that moment it had been a really long time since I had felt condemnation.
