(Excerpt: A Thanksgiving story about a Cherokee Muskrat, a Texas Ranger, and the Family of God. Are you feeling family-less today? God has a seat for you at His table. “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1)
(Excerpt: Jesus calls us to be His disciples. But with that discipleship comes surrender, discipline, and commitment, just like a seed needs to be planted and nurtured.)

We focus so much on “perfecting” that we often miss out on “connecting.” But you don’t have to strive for perfection. God’s perfection is enough. He created us beautifully and wonderfully, and He wants us to accept ourselves and love ourselves as we are, flaws and all. God designed you to be your child’s parent or you to be your spouse's mate, and His design is always perfect.)
