Holy Week & Hot Dogs

On the weekends I help with another Salvation Army drop-in space and Church and this Sunday was a big day – it was hot dog day, oh and also Palm Sunday!

Joy While Waiting

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice! – Philippians 4:4 I very much love the Advent wreath. There is so much symbolism to it; its circular shape is meant to represent God, the Creator and Preserver of all things. God’s love has no beginning and no end; it is eternal. There are …
