  • I have a decent harvest of potatoes this year, most of them are clean as a whistle; a few have a tinge of green (because a little sun shone down on them when they were curing on the veranda of the barn … my fault); and best of all, none have the tiny holes left by the dreaded wireworm.  

  • Years ago I did a funeral for a 4-week-old baby girl. It was difficult. The family had started attending our church prior to the baby being born. We had a baby shower for the mother. She really felt loved and embraced by our church.
