King Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 3:4 that there’s a time to weep, laugh, mourn and dance. But sometimes life’s just hard, and quite frankly you might not even remember when the last time was that you actually just plain ole’ laughed out loud. I was thinking back to when Jeffrey was in all his therapies … More I’ll Take A Double Cheeseburger – Ew, Never Mind…
Some of you might read the above title, and think – is this post going to be about radishes or rutabagas? Sorry to disappoint, but I actually like those particular vegetables, so I’m going to move on to something that’s horrible and degenerative to all of us.

How many of you have decided at one point or the other that it’s up to you to bring someone into a saving relationship with Jesus? I hope there’s more people out there than just me!
