The first two Beatitudes in this series were general concepts meant for any marriage, regardless of religion. This next one is slightly different. This Beatitude shows the foundation our marriages should be built on.

Blessed are they who thank God for their food and who set aside some time each day to read the Bible and [...]

This weekend, Jason & I took a nice long walk/jog along the road that leads from our island (Ocean City) to the next island (containing the towns of Strathmere & Sea Isle).  Jason works in Strathmere in the summertime and wanted to check out the beach situation, since storms tend to wash part of it [...]

Stop, Drop, & Roll…. you probably learned this as a young child, just in case your clothing ever caught on fire.  To put out the fire, your teachers had you practice these three things:

How does that happen? Well, Satan is a deceiver. [...]

I love watching the Olympics! My favorite summer sports to watch are the gymnastics and the diving. I also enjoy watching the swimming and the track and field events. The muscle tone on those athletes is astounding! They make what they do look so easy!
What we don’t see is the thousands of hours of TRAINING [...]

A few weeks ago, my husband was filming a movie. Actually, he was acting in it, and I had the privilege of being an extra. The setting was a cafe, so I thought it would be appropriate for me to be reading a book during the scene, but unfortunately I had forgotten my [...]
