  • Immanuel – God with Us

    This Christmas season I have been thinking a bit about Immanuel. Not the person, but the meaning. God with Us. This post was started a few days ago, posted, and then realizing it wasn’t quite what I wanted to say I took it back down to do some editing.

  • Focus: Jesus

    If this post looks similar to my last post, it is, a little bit anyway. The time has come for me to write my annual Christmas post, and having done one a couple weeks ago I decided to use it as my template. Mostly because I really don’t know what is going to fall out […]

With all the marketing strategies geared toward parting you and your money by offering amazing early Christmas shopping deals, it is nearly impossible to not […]

    Merry Christmas

    Here we are, Christmas Eve. We haven’t sent Christmas cards this year. It’s not that we didn’t want to, or didn’t plan to, but I’m not even sure it’s a thing anymore.
