What Changes Things?

Is social media good for us? There are many debates about “goodness” of social media.  This post is not about that.  It is about the importance of remembrance.   Thanks to Facebook and other social media, I have been reminded of several things that have occurred during winter months.  Most of these memories make me grateful […]

What does God want from me?

The Christian life is sometimes difficult and unexpected. About two and a half years ago, I felt God calling me to blog, but I didn’t want too. I am not a good writer. I can’t even spell. When I started having more troubles with my brain tumor (about two years ago), I consented that I […]
