Thoughts & Intents
But set apart the Messiah as Lord in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. 1 Peter 3:15

So when did the books of the Bible get chosen? Donít Christians and Muslims worship the same God? Arenít all religions pretty much the same? What about the dinosaurs? Do questions like these send you into a mini mind numbing panic? If so donít fret, but donít be content with that state of affairs.
The living of my brief planet-side life is permeated with the fragrance of eternity. Christians do not view success, money, love, problems or suffering in the same way as those who cannot see beyond the grave. Persecutions, perplexities and paradoxes ensue.
From my heart to yours
Mowing the lawn, hanging out laundry--ainít summer grand? Now if we could just figure out whatís eating the broccoli plants in the garden! Iíve planted it twice and something ate it to bare stems twice. Itís a very particular creature--doesnít touch the lettuces or asparagus, just the broccoli. But husband and I have a plan, involving a third sacrificial planting of broccoli, and a motion activated camera. Once we know who the perpetrator is, we can figure out how to deal with it. I always say that gardening in north Idaho is an adventure, but this is a new one for me!
Serving our sweet Savior,
