Testimony Tuesday: What’s Your Story?

She thought she would be alone. Evidently shunned by her community, she shunned them right back and went on about her own business. Day by day she was alone, but she decided not to care, even though deep down inside the hurt remained. She thought she would be alone and then she wasn’t. When she got to the well, there was a man waiting. Should she wait? Should she go ahead and get her chore done? I imagine the questions were swirling in her head but it was the middle of the day. The sun was high in the...

The Greatest Commandment

‘The most important one,’ answered Jesus, ‘is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.’ Mark 12:29-31 A New Neighborhood The move was completed this week.

Testimony Tuesday: It’s All About the Family

A Few Photographs I recently had the opportunity to photograph a dear friend and her family…a four generation family to be exact. She brought her parents, her sons and their wives, and her grandchildren. Dressed in shades of blue with some white shirts and red hair bows thrown in, you could tell they were a family. What really gives it away is spending time with them. The easy teasing, sweet kisses, and hugs all around tell you all that you need to know about this family. But like most families, there is a lot more to it than that....
