To the Year that Kicked My Butt: Thank You

2017, what is there to say about you? You ran in out of nowhere, sped through the room like Usain Bolt, & mugged me on the way out the door. My “one word” theme for 2017 was “discipline” & boy have I felt the effects of it these past 12 months. Really, though, 2017 flew… Continue reading To the Year that Kicked My Butt: Thank You

The Leper or Townsfolk: Which Will You Be?

I’ve continued on with reading multiple chapters a day from different books of the Bible (I’ll admit, as a lot has come up over the past week, I have fallen behind where I want to be). Even still, I found Matthew 8 interesting. In this chapter, there are multiple descriptions of Jesus healing people from… Continue reading The Leper or Townsfolk: Which Will You Be?
