Love + Incarnational = Transformation

I stopped by my Grand Mother's house today to pick up some flowers she wanted us to have.  Granny Hobbs is 91 now and for as long as I can remember she has given everything away.  My daughter asked me, "Why is she giving us that stuff?" Well she also included a case of Yoohoo, Sunny D and cookies.  I told my daughter, "Granny Hobbs came into this world with nothing and she will leave with nothing", [...]

The Glory of the Wind…

Close Encounters of the God Kind…
