Psalm 22:22 Today is one of those days.  I want to write.  I need to write...but my thoughts are like spider webs - knitting together and then floating away.  I can't concentrate.  So I sit before this screen and ask … Continue reading Writing for One

1 AM Thoughts- written by madiharvs

So, I stumbled across this blog, written by a college freshman attending Auburn University.  As the mother of a college frosh son, I expected to read about the parties, the fun and the "omg" drama moments of a young person tasting "freedom"  for the first time.  Yes, I read a little about that - but what … Continue reading 1 AM Thoughts- written by madiharvs

Here our people have nothing, most have lost everything, yet the presence of Jesus is so real. We talk about love all the time, and in love we see the beginning of reconciliation. The glory or miraculous presence of God is a constant topic of conversation. God is ever present in His power and majesty, and in times of distress the Holy Spirit provides comfort and, truly, a peace that transcends the rational.’
