Most Want It … But Not Right Now!

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29, ESV) I’ve read the newspaper with interest since I was a young boy growing up in Oklahoma City. And in […]

“To Be Or Not To Be … That Is The Question!”

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”        (Matthew 5:3, NKJV) It’s always interesting and even entertaining to watch the ‘little ones’ trying to exercise their independence!  And I might add that it takes patience in helping them learn how to do things on their own the right way!
