Ignore it

If someone calls you fat, just ignore them. You are bigger than that. To ignore is to refuse to pay attention to; to disregard; to pass over or by without notice; to treat as if not known; and to leave out of account. I am reading through Job in my One Year Bible, and three … Continue reading Ignore it

Think outside the box

I just love speaking with kids. They have not been conformed to “behaving like an adult” yet, and the things they say delight me. They truly think outside the box.
