She Was, She Is, She Will Be

Beti was a small woman with a giant heart and an even bigger smile. She was always laughing and always making me laugh. She was a great person to be around. She was sure to yell at me when I would extend my hand for a handshake, instead of my arms for a hug. She…

Dear Mom

Dear Mom, When I was a boy, you told me to think about the bruises on your face and the bruises on your feet. You asked me to remember a mother’s love for her son, so that I would not forget God’s love for sinners. Before I knew God through Christ, I knew about Him…
