Tattling On My Offenders

While enjoying the morning on my front porch an older gentleman caught my attention as he walked past me. At first, it was his age, pace, and slightly hunched-over back that caused me to pause and admire him. As he went past I heard him talking to himself.

Find Joy In The Stillness

Sitting in my white rocking chair on my front porch is one of my favorite places to meet with God. It’s the simple things that bring me joy in God while sitting still before Him.
