  “I will no longer drive out before them any of the nations Joshua left when he died.  I will use them to test Israel and see whether they will keep the way of the Lord and walk in it as their forefathers did.  The Lord had allowed those nations to remain; he did not drive them out at once…

The “Momo Challenge”

The “Momo Challenge”

Blessings! ** Warning: the picture associated with this link is disturbing.

Rise & Shine

Rise and Shine!  I love this video!  Nothing in life is easy and nothing worth its salt happens by accident.  The lessons we learn through pain, the obstacles we have to run at a few times teach us the truths that stay with us for a life time.  It is worth your effort.  It is worth your discomfort and sacrifice. …

Thanks Moms!

Thanks Moms!

  Newsflash…there is no such thing as a supermom.  Being a supermom in the sense of having a beautiful, immaculate home, working, keeping the laundry done, kids bathed, dinner on the table, wearing a size 4, driving the taxi with a song in your heart, being a math tutor and counselor may be a little out of reach.  However, laughing,…
