Thought for Today


What a blessing it has been to see the new growth coming through on this mature palm tree after the devastation of Hurricane Richard last year.  I take notice of the old branches that have turned brown and are falling away.  May my arms keep reaching up to Him anew and fresh each day.  Rejoicing through 2011 come what may.

  2. Good Afternoon,
    Would love to get in touch as we are looking to come to Belize. I'm encouraged by the evidence of your faith on your blog and would love to hear more about your ministry as well! Not sure how to exchange personal info privately here, but am willing to get in touch through e-mail and share my own blog about our family.
