Happy Eyes

Don’t you just love the look on a child’s face when he or she opens a gift, and it is a wonderful surprise? The anticipation was building as the child looked at a colorful, maybe even shiny or sparkly box that was meant just for him or her. Ideas may race through the mind as…

Perspectives

I recently went on vacation to see some of my loved ones, and also had the opportunity to visit Myrtle Beach and Virginia Beach. As I stood at the shore and enjoyed squishing my toes into the sand while the waves repeatedly covered my feet and sank me down deeper and deeper, I thought about…

Spread That Light!

Do you get discouraged with the evil darkness that is all around you? Remember one very important thing: Light is more powerful than Darkness.
