Purpose in the Waiting

There is so much we can learn in times of waiting. Thankfully, we have examples of people in the Bible who waited for what was to come.

Colors of the Cross

Welcome to Faith Connections Friday! Celebrate Easter with me as we imagine what may have been going through the disciples’ minds. Everything seems to be going smoothly. We followed Jesus for three years. We walked with Jesus as He entered Jerusalem on a donkey, and He was praised and honored with palm branches. All was… Continue reading Colors of the Cross
