Musings from The Garden

So I spent yesterday weeding and mulching a large flower garden in our yard. (Graduation party coming up this summer!!) Every time I spend a lot of time weeding I think about how the sins in our lives are so much like weeds. There are so many parallels. Here are some musings from my time …

For He Alone is Worthy

I sat in the church pew alone this past Sunday and sang these words. And God spoke to me. We have had a rough year.  My son was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder in June.  It's not any sort of joke the way people kid each other and say, "you're so OCD!"  It is a serious …
