New Normal

It’s been 3 months since I had the stroke. Though there is no permanent damage, there are still things that changed. My stamina is not what it used to be and I tire easily. I’m not used to having to go to bad at 8:30 every night, but it’s what my body needs at thisRead moreRead more

People are born every day. People die every day. There is an appointed time for birth and death. The thing about that is we neither know the day, hour, or the how. God has appointed us a time to be born and a time to die. It’s that in between time that we get toRead moreRead more

Your Why

I mentioned in the previous article that you need to identify your why. Many times we do things because we see others doing it or it’s the new fad. Dig deep, okay, well maybe not that deep.
