I recently watched a video of an awesome song done by one of my most favoritest singers. She was talking about pride and humility…two of the trickiest character qualities to deal with. You can’t have the latter without the lack of the former. “Pride comes before a fall,” Proverbs 16:18 says. I love how The… Continue reading s t a y l o w
From a post today by Jon Acuff: “Do you know why strangers rage at each other online and are so quick to be angry and offended these days? Because their passion has no other outlet.

Since January isn’t over yet, I think it’s still ok to talk about resolutions. “LeeAnn Greenup Ramsey” and “New Year’s resolutions” have a love/hate….well, let’s just say an “awkward” relationship.
