Be Grateful
Life is difficult and people everywhere struggle with financial stress, health issues, problems on the job, and family strife.

How Hard Can It Be?
Last Saturday started out like every other Saturday during the springtime of the year. I cut the grass, cleaned up the garage, and completed any unfinished tasks that had been lingering around the house. I had finished all my regular responsibilities when my wife told me the bathroom sink was clogged.

Praying For Hiccups
A few days ago one of my friends had a “procedure” at a local hospital. I have found it very professional to say “procedure” when someone else has to go to the hospital to get put to sleep and to get something removed, mended, or stretched.

A Love Like Jesus Had for Us
We know that Jesus said "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you"--but it's difficult to do.  Loving others--even when they seem unlovable--is what this week's Refiner's Fire is about.
