Getting Your Joy Back

I enjoy going for brisk walks, but lately, I have been making excuses as to why not to. Either it was the weather, not feeling well, or a heap of other circumstances. Looking through my calendar I found that two months had slipped by with no noted walks! The thought of getting back into the swing of things made the joy I once had seem more like an arduous task. Can you relate? Have you lost your joy in doing something you once loved? Perhaps you have lost your joy: Working through a Bible study Attending church Exercising In...

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.
