Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

“If you seek the kernel,
then you must break the shell.
An likewise, if you would know the reality of Nature,
you must destroy the appearance,
and the farther you go beyond the appearance,
the nearer you will be to the essence.”
- Meister Eckhart

It took a long time for me
to break out of my shell of shyness
when talking to a member of the opposite sex.
That happened on a blind date
when I first met my wife.
Today is 40 years.
Our love keeps growing.

“A happy marriage is a long conversation
which always seems too short.”
- Andre Maurois
