Longing for Home

When the world seems to be turning upside down I find myself longing for Home more and more.  That longing points us toward the reality of Heaven.  It is a longing that every man and woman has, but not every man and woman finds the proper fulfillment.  Some choose to try to fill that void […]

Statement on the recent Supreme Court decision.

Yesterday I made the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage in all fifty states.  I must give credit to Dr. Albert Mohler for the idea behind the everything has changed and nothing has changed.  You can read his statement here.  The rest is from the heart.

I Want to Yearn for You!

Yesterday I posted a video by Shane and Shane.  A few weeks my daughter, Hollie, told me to listen to a song by them that just spoke to my heart and I want to share another of their videos.  Make this your prayer…
