The Holly and the Ivy (#jammed daily devo, day 348)

December #jammed: Grace, gifted. Day 348: Rivalry. "A true friend is closer than a brother." Proverbs 18:24 Ivy is a climbing vine. Holly is a tree or shrub.

Anyone else feel like a… Continue reading The Crossfire (#jammed daily devo, day 313)

The Step Back. (#jammed daily devo, day 191)

July #jammed: Grace serves. Day 191: Space to breathe. " Be like obedient children as you put aside the desires you used to pursue when you didn’t know better." 1 Peter 1:13 "Are  you ready to go?!" I excitedly asked my toddlers. "YAAAAYYYY!!!!" and off we went to meet up with friends for a day of… Continue reading The Step Back. (#jammed daily devo, day 191)
