Even as I got older I would stretch the truth to make myself look better, feel less embarrassed about things, make the story shorter so I didn’t have to go into deeper details and I would try to dodge things that I didn’t necessarily want to talk about. Looking back on it, I’m wondering if...

the thing i miss

The one thing i miss about being in an old church is the purple carpet. I always wondered why churches have the weirdest colors. There are many things I miss about old time church. The hymns, choir robes, purple jackets, banners and the people playing off rhythm with tambourines. Makes me smile just thinking about it. What’s one thing you like about church or that you miss seeing in church these...

Pray for Amy

On Sunday, May 23, Amy Wooddell suffered a stroke and underwent 7.5 hours of surgery to remove the clotting in her basil artery. Additionally they found that her right vertebral artery was torn and was repaired with a stint. She awoke responsive and could even whisper her own name. However, a few hours later her brain began to bleed resulting in an emergency procedure to relieve inner cranial pressure. On Monday, May 24 she was...
