walkin’ the walk: my grace is sufficient for you

If you’ve visited with me here before, you’ll know that I confess to needing a knock upside the head sometimes to get one concept or another to stick. (see here, here, and here.  I’m sure there are others, as I am a very slow learner!) Most recently, it’s been the truth illustrated in 2 Corinthians…… Continue reading walkin’ the walk: my grace is sufficient for you

Ever have one of “those days”?  You know, the kind when you get out of bed and you just feel off.  You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders.  You feel grumpy for no particular reason (after all the day hasn’t even started!).  You feel sad and discouraged and beaten and sore? Perhaps,…… Continue reading wrong side of the bed
