Morning = Psalm 13, How Long, O Lord?

I once read a story about a dog named Bailey. Bailey was a two -year old basset hound who had a gentle playful temper, eager to love anyone near him. But though this is true, Bailey has a bit of baggage. You see, Bailey was just a puppy when an F-5 tornado came through his…

Morning = John 21:1-14, Breakfast with Jesus

As a young boy and up through my teenage years our family usually vacationed in Sarasota, FL during the 4th of July weekend.

Morning = John 20:30-31, A Compelling Content

‘Why the Chronicles of Narnia?’ was the question asked again and again by C.S.
