Which way did he go…..

I know many of you ladies out there reading this may roll your eyes when I say this…. But as a man, I don’t need directions when I travel someplace. I just don’t need them and won’t use any other alternative devices for help either. I don’t need a GPS, or some crazy...

Now Available!

You may come to the same conclusion another reader came to when I was in the early process of simply sending my stories out to gauge the interest of a potential book. She said, "You have led a charmed life."

That sounds like in some way I have been "lucky" that I haven't experienced hardships, pain, or defeat. Nothing could be further from the truth. But I will tell you what is true, I have had a blessed life. Through it all, the Lord has kept me above my trials and tribulations, even when I didn't believe He was there. Through disappointment, death, disease, He was there.
