Joy In His Presence

It was a major time of transition in my life, and things didn’t appear to be working out. I was working for a ministry, but was having a hard time making ends meet. I was getting by month-to-month, but just barely.

I was having a hard time maintaining my joy.

The Love of the Father

Seated with my son, Joshua, on my lap, I relaxed for a few moments, musing over the activities of the day… I glanced down at Joshua and noticed that he was fast asleep in my arms. He looked so peaceful lying there…
