It has been more than eight years since I officially became an orphan when my mom passed away. It is kind of funny how even now I occasionally find myself thinking “I need to tell mom about this” . I guess that shows the influence she had on... read more

While reflecting upon the blog I wrote yesterday, I was struck by the fact that NEVER in my nearly 45 years of being a Christian have I ever prayed to or addressed my Savior as Jesus. Throughout every day I call upon Jesus Christ numerous times, but I... read more
