Perception

Last night we went to a training session for our business that had a mixed crowd in the room. There were new people and veterans alike.

The Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together. They were covered and protected, but the quills of each wounded the closest companion. After a while, they decided to distance themselves, and they began to die, alone and frozen. So, they had …

Amazing Grace

We attend Connexus Community Church in Barrie some Sundays and yesterday’s message hit me pretty hard. The message itself was excellent. Go to the web page and watch this week’s message: The cost. You can’t just sit there. We need to forgive. Everything. That doesn’t mean that we accept that whatever the person did that …

Life Reset

Sometimes we face a great tragedy in our lives and it just devastates us. We feel sorry for ourselves and question just how could God do this to us.
