  • Recent national and global economic news has been troubling, with significant long-term issues that contribute to financial uncertainty. While it’s important to remain aware of these issues, concern is better channeled into productive action on a more personal level, such as examining your family’s budget and making decisions that wisely use money.

  • Gardening this year has surely had its ups and downs. It rained profusely in April and May, delaying planting. Then came the weeds followed by early blight, late blight, Septoria leaf blight and insects! If that wasn’t bad enough, it stopped raining along with 20 plus days of temperatures above 90 degrees. However, gardeners still have one more opportunity to complete the gardening season.

    On May 30, 1978, the blood of Jesus cleansed me from all my sin.

    Actually, that happened 2,000 years before that, but I didn’t know it until that day.

    As my Jesus-anniversary present this year, I bought myself a CD of old hymns set to new music. It’s called “For All the Saints,” the third Indelible Grace project. (See www.igracemusic.com)
