8.12.2020 – “Am I being authentically me?”

I have to ask myself that question from time to time… This morning, the Lord took me back through my dream journal for 2019, and I came to one of my dreams, and in this dream I was frantically “looking, looking, looking” for a place, a bathroom, where I could change into some “better looking… Read More 8.12.2020 – “Am I being authentically me?”

8.11.2020 – God’s Windows

I asked the Lord this morning, what He was speaking to my heart… Because I knew that He was speaking….

8.10.2020 – The “Foreshocks”

We had a 5.1 earthquake in North Carolina yesterday—apparently it was the first one of this kind of magnitude we’ve had in the state in over 100 years.

8.1.2020 – This goes out to the “Black Sheep”

This morning as I was sitting here, I thought of the term, “black sheep.” This term means, “a member of a family or group who is regarded as a disgrace to them.” “In the English language, black sheep is an idiom used to describe an odd or disreputable member of a group, especially within a family.
