Tom and I just finished reading the entire Cape Refuge series last week. Wow. Terry Blackstock knows how to weave a story, throw out red herrings, and keep you turning pages. All three books center around a halfway house run by Christians, and operated by donations of caring people, on an island in Georgia called Cape Refuge. … Continue reading Book Review: “The Cape Refuge” Series
I awakened at about 1:00 a.m. this morning weeping and sobbing with the woman in my dream as if I was that woman who loved her husband as much as I love mine. Something had happened that left the couple destitute, living in a homeless shelter. Day after day people came in with their families … Continue reading Despair, Hopelessness, and Faith

I love this post. God gave me this same promise out of Jeremiah when my marriage was falling apart many years ago.

I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their…
