Do Not Judge–Part II

Like my friend who, after a long time of effort, finally […]

Forgiveness is Key–Part II

I was recently at a writer’s conference with other Christian writers. I met one of the speakers for the first time, even though I’d emailed her before.

Eternal Moments of the Day–Nostalgia Time

Ten years ago today, my Mother died. Her earthly body died, but her spirit went straight to her Savior. She was 89 and a half. I’ll never forget that day. I can’t believe it’s been ten years. In some ways, it seems longer, because so much has happened since then. In others, it doesn’t seem […]

For a purpose

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
