He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." John 1:6-9 ...

My heart rate was about to return to normal when I opened the feed room door and the possum that was on the edge of the feed barrel hissed at me. Continue Reading »
