    Your Understanding Might Miserably Fail, and Here’s Why…

    As a young teen my grandpa suffered many physical ailments.  It was tough to see him suffer so much.  I certainly did not understand why God let him go through so many difficulties.

    Wake Up! It’s Time to Have the Courage of Esther the Queen

    NOTE: I first wrote this post October 14, 2015. I find it more fitting than ever and a good time to repeat it’s prompting to be read. Do not live in a fairy tale bubble… It’s time to wake up! In fairy tales it seems that the heroes never die…they miraculously conquer whatever misfortune they may face. In such fairy tales… Cinderella escapes her cruel Stepmother and marries the Prince to go live in the Palace. Today there are many heroes of faith who do not live the fairy tale life.
