To be or not to be…

rebaptized? Now there is a heated debate, if there ever was one, of whether to baptize infants, children, or only those who can reasonably know what they are doing? So where did I land and how did I venture into this debate to begin with? Lord, help me… Making a long story short, so I do…

Insurmountable

Forgive! …such an easy word to give out. Okay Lord, in your loving arms I can forgive. Then my sinful nature asks “Why?” “Look what they did to me Lord? Can you not see their evil deeds against me?” “Yes, I see.” Forgive! It is the only way to find freedom. Peace! Let your heart…

Brother

I choose to look forward. I will remember you. You, missing kids growing up, wanting to say hello. You left suddenly. Watching the world spin from the heavens, stunned. I slowly came out from a coma, hearing birds. The Savior reached for you. I pray you grabbed His hand. Wrapped in bitterness life has certainly been…
