          These are perilous times. If you don’t believe me, just look at the news every day.  It is filled with horrible stories about men and women, boys and girls who are following their flesh in violent and lustful atrocities against God and man. Just this past week there was several stories that made me sick to my stomach just reading them. In story after story people are caught in sick, harmful, grieving and disgusting sin.

Goal Unawares

For most of my life I have not been a goals oriented person. Whenever someone asked me what my goals were I usually was at a loss for words. When the New Year came around and everyone set resolutions, I had none. I really just set nothing for myself and dealt with life day by day.
