  • Powerful words, how will you use yours?

    I am often reminded by God to think before you speak. A great policy for anyone. We sometimes pretend that words don’t mean much, but they are incredibly powerful! In the Old Testament story of the Tower of Babel, God wanted to halt their building project.
    The book of Genesis tells us that they were building a tower so high that they began to be filled with pride. To stop the project, God took away their most important tool. Not the hammers or chisels, He took away their ability to communicate.

  • Grace Notes

    When I was a kid, my grandmother on my father’s side owned a bakery.
    Whenever we’d visit her we would come home with huge pink bakery boxes filled with assorted butter cookies, plus bags of bagels and loaves of bread and the best cinnamon rolls and bear claws you could ever eat.
    Fun fact: My dad used to say that when Uncle Benny swept the floor at night, whatever he swept up was what he put on the bear claws as toppings.
    I’m pretty sure he was joking, or else he wanted to gross us out so he could eat all the bear claws.
