Before continuing I want to add a disclaimer: This is not intended as a blanket instruction for all Christians, neither do I intend any judgment on those who may choose to do otherwise.

The snow had melted and the sunny day promised, perhaps unfaithfully, an early Spring. I found myself thinking fondly of warm days in the sun and a languidness began to wash over me.

I personally have struggled to know how to pray for my nation since I believe we have too long ignored God’s warnings and are now in the last days prophecied of in Scripture. This is not to … Continue reading A Prayer for America
My mother, like so many people, recorded hundreds of old movies off the TV. Being the big time old movie fan that I am, I gobbled them up steadily.
