Our client’s voice was literally fraught with fear and panic at the prospect of possibly losing his mortgage interest deduction that he normally takes on his taxes each year. After trying to interject my thoughts about this subject, I knew I had to sit back and simply listen to everything he wanted to say. Basically, I was unable to get any words in edge-wise. So I sat back and listened to him rant and rave about the injustice of this proposed fiscal cliff legislation. He’s not alone. Many Americans are left wondering about the economic times ahead. What are the (2 comments)

The fiery event that unfolded before our very own eyes yesterday was nothing short of biblical proportions. As we were literally escaping the searing flames and rumbling billows of black smoke and flying ashes, it felt very surreal for Cherise and me. Yes, that’s right, surreal, meaning to have an intense reality of a dream or something of the sort. The eyes of my heart kept reflecting to the poignant words written in the book of Habakkuk, “…Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days – you would not believe if you were told” (Habakkuk 1:5, NASB). (18 comments)
