Going Through The Motions – Christmas

This Christmas something was truly missing for me, and until this morning… I couldn’t figure it out. Then I came upon the most important question that could be asked in terms of  Christmas.

I Wanna Talk About Me

I Wanna Talk About Me   When we’re caught in a whirlpool or a tide, the first thought we tend to have reads much like a Toby Keith song. We get into the mindset that it’s all about ‘Me.’ So the first thing we’re going to talk about is, well, ourselves. Let’s face it. As good […]
