Recently I've been questioning the existence of God. Blegh. Heavy, I know. But if I didn't remind you of that struggle o' mine, this story would mean nothing. God sent me a little lesson while I was assembling a chair today. Brace yourselves; I'm about to get all sorts of crazy up in here.

I was trying to get myself in the holiday spirit tonight - tough to do when the temps are mid-60's when we should be averaging 40's with at least a threat of snow. Tree is up, lights are lit, and I watched three Hallmark-y Christmas movies [desperate times]. In the process of decorating, I found … Continue reading What Hinders Real Worship?
