My Latest article on Bible Basics
Maybe you get the urge, like I do, to fling a few things into a suitcase and head for someplace recently in the news, where people don't have Jesus to carry them through whatever horrible suffering is engulfing them. I want to go. I can’t go. But I have front-line work available to me right here, and so do you.
From my heart to yours
Spring is finally on its way up here, and the snow is off my garden. The chickens are out, scratching up the dirt, and it’s time to buy pea seeds. Truly, for everything there is a season, and I’m so grateful when the season for planting arrives after a long winter.
Serving our sweet Savior,
