(Hebrews 10:36) "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise." Today, I was again reminded of the need for more patience. This planting season was a year of abundance ... in spite of minimal rain. Early on, I was incredibly frustrated...
This letter is in response to Diane Jeffrey's letter of September 14. She states that she is sick of politics, yet she wants everyone to vote blue ... really? Well Diane, stop drinking the kool-aid. The party of blue are the ones in control who are doing everything that you talked about. You,...
