“Aww you two make a lovely couple!”

“I love the way you and your husband dance in church, moving in the same direction.”

“Is this your other half?”

“How long have you two been married?” Continue reading

Start, Middle and End

In the space of less than 10 days, I celebrated the life of a friend who’s now with Jesus and then a week later with another friend who now needs Jesus like never before . . . on the journey called marriage!

Eternity’s Brief

Recently, I listened to a message by John Bevere as he shared in Bethel Church about one’s life purpose. One of the things that stuck in my head was Continue reading
