In the Bible, we never hear of a man named Lazarus before or after he dies. What we know is that he had two sisters, who were seemingly close with Jesus, and that Jesus waited several days before raising him from the dead. Because of this, we can only infer that a previous relationship was present between the two, but the Bible is trying to show something by introducing this story from seemingly n...

I look at my son, Jude, everyday and I'm always so amazed. He is barely two and he already talks and interacts like a 10-year old. He has his own personality and sense of humor and he has an incredible ability to make me feel joy just by existing. Even when I have to get on to him,I still absolutely love him.

He replied boldly and without a mom...

As I sat down to right this piece, the image that came to my mind was that of my next door neighbor, so let me describe her for you. First, I would be remiss if I didn't say that she is an absolute sweetheart. She has curly white hair and thick brimmed glasses. She is short and fairly petite. She is constantly on the go, walking our dangerously busy street to cook for events, clean, and attend her...
