His Encouragement: Pray on every occasion

It may be that you, too, are struggling. Perhaps, like us, it seems that one bad thing seems to be followed by another and another.

His Encouragement: John 10:10

Life is precious. Every second, every minute that passes is time that we can never get back. Every moment we share with loved ones is unique and, try as we may, we can never fully replicate it. Yet in this fast-paced world with an abundance of knowledge and distractions in the form of the Internet, social media, and at our fingertips, we are allowing this scarce commodity to slip through our fingers.
