Blindsided

Blindsided. The one word that popped up in my soul this morning when grappling with something worthy to share. What do we do when it happens to us? How do we react when nothing makes sense - And we find ourselves on the floor? A jolt that immobilizes us- Bad news in our health, the …

What Are We Saying?

Today's post was inspired by a devotion I received called "The Power Of Words". Like a neutron bomb which annihilates human life but leaves buildings intact, words can devastate. Your body may remain unharmed, but your heart suffers the deadly shrapnel of painful phrases. David, who knew a thing or two about having enemies in high places, …
