Jesus wore sandals.

I saw this picture circulating around the interwebs.*  I’ve seen lots of pictures of Jesus walking on the water over the years: pictures of Peter falling into the water, Jesus walking in the storm.

Where Jeremiah and “The Harbinger” Met This Morning

I was reading the last few chapters of the book of Proverbs today. (Don’t you just love reading Proverbs 31 and going, oh yeah, that’s me, ah, that’s not me, that’s me, that’s not me….) Then I flipped some pages over and landed on Jeremiah 36. I hadn’t read it in a while. In this passage, The … More Where Jeremiah and “The Harbinger” Met This Morning

When I asked for help, God gave me a BIGGER mountain, which made the first problem look like nothing.  Not exactly the answer I was looking for…. But the … More Shrinking Mountains
