What season do you find yourself in today? Would you characterize your life as being in the Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter? I know where I live the season seems a bit messed up. It’s May and I’m writing on the back deck of our home wearing a sweatshirt. The Fall-like weather feels great but … More Seek Him first in your season
Today is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent. It is a time that many Christians take to prepare themselves leading up to the celebration of Easter. I have heard of those who are giving up things like chocolate, Facebook, Coke, or some other daily habit during this time. Lent is not something my … More I will pursue You
