Stay Awake

Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. – Mt 24:42 Stay awake. Pay attention. God is with us always. Are we aware of His presence?  What do we miss when we go through our days half asleep? What do we miss when we close our eyes and… Read More ›

Come and See

Who is Jesus?

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” – Matthew 16:15 Who do you say that Jesus is?  Who do you know Jesus to be? Not just His name but who He is.  I have related to Jesus in different ways throughout my spiritual journey. There are times when I have… Read More ›
