Alive

This is a poem that I wrote this week; a week of weeping with friends for present sorrows and a week of remembrance for past sorrows, ones that linger. As the week went on I thought and prayed and cried for those who don’t feel anymore. For the disconnected. This poem is for all who…

The Stronghold God builds in his Children

The stronghold in us. You know I have 5 kids, and one of my prayers goes like this, “Thank you God for giving my kids such faithful, friendly, fun and fantastic pastors to lead them. I love you, thank you.” I tell my kids, “You know you can pray like that too and your prayers…
