Do you remember sitting on Santa’s knee and whispering your Christmas wish in his ear? This picture is evidence that at least I sat on his knee. Whether or not I whispered in his ear that I wanted a walking doll for Christmas only Santa knows ‘cause I can’t remember asking him!  Either way, I’m happy to report that I did get my walking doll.

Thought-Provoking One-Liners

Sometimes when you watch a movie, listen to a conversation between two people, or sit under the teaching of godly men (as I have done this summer), one-liners often jump out at you that are thought-provoking, often inspiring. And often applicable to where you might be on your life’s journey. For example, I heard this statement in a movie recently: “Each of us needs a good friend to show us the best part of who we are. Everyone has their weaknesses, but also we have a special talent inside...
