Ourselves, money, our weapons? Do we feel God owes us? After all I’m a nice person. Really! I’m not. You know I really don’t know how to love or like people. I need the Lord to help me love others. When we receive His love then we are full to give it to others. He helps us to forgive, to love, to trust, to comfort. He is amazing.

We got a little more snow last week and it brought a few laughs for me and my friends. There’s a group of people who live around Cottonwood, who come down here for church every Saturday. After church they always bless me with their presence at Canyon House. We were sitting around the table looking out the window and watching the wind blow the snow up! Those prairie folks thought it was pretty funny, that when you’re at the bottom, everything goes up from here!
