I’ve Got…What?

Today sent me in a little bit of a tailspin with work, projects, and just jumping back into the daily routine after the weekend. But as my thoughts raced to figure out how to try and finish out this day I honestly began to get irritated and started complaining in...

Make Hay While the Sun Shines

I was introduced to making hay in my mid-teens on a hot summer day in Indiana. It was by far some of the hardest work I had done to date, but it will forever be etched in my mind as a really good memory. I was reading in John 9 and verses 4-5 really challenged my...
