It’s interesting, (that’s a kind word for it) to take a walk with me, but will you walk with me. I have something important to share with you. I’m sorta like the little boy in Bil Keane’s “Family Circus” comic strip. I have a hard time staying focused on one thing. Everything intrigues me! I’m […]
Power is a Big Deal! Sometimes we forget all the things we use that require power. Just let it go off for an hour, or even worse days, then you will remember very quickly how important power is. We are praying for the folks that just went through Hurricane Florence. It is estimated that 3 […]
