New Year’s Eve, 2009

I have been through a lot of New Year’s Eves.  As a young girl I would get a one year diary for Christmas and beginning Jan 1 I would journal each day’s events, that is for a couple of months or so. As I grew older, it was all about being with a group of …

World Overcomer

Watching the Florida/Alabama game,  I noticed Tim Tebow has a Bible scripture taped across his face.   John 16:33, which in essence says that in this world we will have trouble, but be not dismayed, because Christ has come to overcome the trouble of the world and through Him we can be world overcomers.  What …
