A little conviction for the day...

“The nearest place to the gate of heaven is the throne of the heavenly grace. Much alone, and you will have much assurance; little alone with Jesus, your religion will be shallow, polluted with many doubts and fears, and not sparkling with the joy of the Lord. Since the soul-enriching path of prayer is open to the very weakest saint; since no high attainments are required; since you are not bidden to come because you are an advanced saint, but freely invited if you be a saint at all; see to it, dear reader, that you are often in the way of private devotion. Be much on your knees, for so Elijah drew the rain upon famished Israel’s fields.”

- Charles Spurgeon, Morning & Evening

It's Time...

Peace out, Summer!

Hello, Fall!!!!

Dear Fall,

There's just something about you that makes me want to fully indulge in your season.

At the first burst of coolness, I am immediately invigorated mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

I have burning desires to bake spiced pumpkin treats, simmer hot cider all day and sip it all evening, and decorate with all the warm, brilliant Autumn colors (ones we hardly see in Texas) found in the wreath above.

There's no season like it.

Welcome and please make yourself at home in Bryan-College Station.
