  • Rain doesn't dampen fun at sister's wedding

    If you happened to read my column a few weeks ago, you might remember that I mentioned  my sister’s upcoming wedding. OK, I didn’t just mention it. I wrote a whole column about it.  
    Well, the wedding happened. No huge argument or cold feet intervened. And, unfortunately for those of us in the wedding party,  even torrential rain didn’t put a stop to the proceeding.
     And, yes, it was an outside wedding.

  • All have value in God’s eyes

    The fact that you’re only one believer among bazillions doesn’t cheapen your value to God.
    If you were the only person on the planet, Christ still would have died for you. The Bible proves that point:
    When God first issued his promise to rescue sinful humankind, there was only one couple on earth.
    After Adam and Eve sinned, God promised to crush Satan’s head. [Cool, huh?]
    God was talking about the victory over sin that Christ’s death on the cross would bring.
