  •  Energy costs are monthly expenses that fluctuate throughout the year, since much of our heating and cooling usage depends on Mother Nature. However, you can make your home more energy efficient and reduce some of your energy expenses by locating and switching off sources of phantom energy in your home.

  •  Time is precious. We are not on this earth very long. One day you start to flip the switch and turn the light on, but you find the bulb is shot. This will happen in life.

    So, each of us should seek to make the most of the time that we have. We can do this by making most of our walk with God. James 4:14-16 asks the question, “What is your life?” He goes ahead to say among other things that it is a vapor that appears for a short time and then vanishes into the air.
