One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.

Walk The Talk
For years, a couple had complained bitterly about the lack of sidewalks in their small town, observing often if only they had sidewalks, they would walk daily and become models of fitness.
