Journey Update: March 2018

It is hard to believe we are in our third month of 2018 but time marches on.  Time flies by and there is much to do in the work of the Kingdom of God.  I am more conscious than ever to be about the Father’s business and I want to be careful to stay in His will day by day.  I don’t mind being busy just as long as I am flying with God; it is of no value to be flapping our wings for no good purpose.  This means that we have to occasionally say no and that always leaves someone disappointed.  The urgent thing is not always the best thing.

Old Boots and Old Friends

Old Boots and Old Friends

Old boots are much like old friends. They started out maybe a little stiff and came across somewhat stand-offish..  At first they may not have seemed a perfect fit but the more time I spent with them the more we molded into one.  As we walked the roads together, we became a team of one.
