Seasons

A favorite saying of my wife and I is “It’s all in season.” What we mean by that is that life changes all the time. With every change in life you enter a different season.

Being a Christian is Work!

Hard-Work-AntSometimes being something is easy, it comes to you naturally. There are no extra things you have to do or steps that you have to take, you just are.
