Welcome to WOW: Word Of the Week

Note: During the time I served in local ministry, for many years my usual practice in the Wednesday night devotionals was to prepare a short talk centered around a "word of the week." Many members who heard those brief talks have commented to me that focusing on a specific word was helpful and provided strength to get through the rest of the week. Unfortunately, I did not save any notes from those talks.
At the urging of several, especially of my wife, I am writing brief articles using "a word of the week." The written articles are posted here each week, usually on or before Wednesday. Many of the articles are also recorded, with the videos posted to my Facebook page (and perhaps in the future to my YouTube channel.)
God loves you, and I love you, and that's how it's gonna be! Be blessed to be a blessing! I hope you find encouragement and strength for the journey in these words!
