Dennis and I have been talking about blogging for some time, but time kept getting away. When we bounced ideas around, we kept coming back to things in our lives. While our lives have not always been a bed of roses without thorns, we are very blessed in many ways. The world can be so negative. Whether it is the news or things you read, people focus on the bad side of life so the “Debbie downers” of the world, win. We want to encourage people, share encouraging messages, and we want to provide a place that people can encourage each other. While our post will not always center around God, Dennis and I both recognize the fact that without God, none of this would be possible. He is the reason we want to encourage people in life – because He is the one who encourages our happiness.
