    My husband Bud and I were working in the back yard last week, when a minivan pulled into the driveway.

  • COLUMN: Say a good prayer for everyone

    There are times in life when we find ourselves between a rock and a hard place and we need someone to rescue us. The psalmist seems to be in such a place when he pleads with God in Psalm 141 to “come quickly.” He says, “Hasten to me. Give ear to my voice when I call to Thee.”
    God loves for his children to talk to him in prayer. Someone has said that prayer is our talking to God and Bible reading is God talking to us.
