Let me tell you about a gift I was given on Sunday, June 26, 2022!

She ministered beautifully in a … Continue reading Celebratory Fast Ending!
Being so different and incredibly young, we were both filled with stubborn pride. He found it hard to apologize while I was the one saying “sorry.” Yet, he forgave quickly, while I was the one holding a grudge. We were sputtering and spiraling, but God had other plans. The Bible says, “two are better than … Continue reading Celebratory Fast “Take 4”

So I got the guy BUT (there is that dreaded word; if you missed it, see The “Scarlett” Letter, part 1) we had no idea what we were up against! The truth is “Happily-ever-after” only comes from self-sacrificing, selfless love, the type Christ had when He laid down His life for the sins of the … Continue reading The “Scarlett” Letter, Part 2
On October 28, 1980, I received the letter. It was folded several times and pinned to the bulletin board hanging outside my dorm room. I quickly noticed it had been written at 3 in the morning because not only was the date scribbled down but also the time of writing. The writer actually jotted out … Continue reading The “Scarlett” Letter, Part 1
