LITTLE ZACC

As we entered Jericho I observed a few people doing some digging. It was a number of people engaged in excavation… what a tedious job. However, something else caught my attention, bougainvilleas everywhere. I have never seen anything to equal that display! My mind immediately went back to the Scriptural story, in Luke 19 aboutContinue reading “LITTLE ZACC”

A SIGNIFICANT SYMBOL

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 The sound was arresting. Having awakened from a deep sleep, the quietness was being penetrated by the cooing of a doveContinue reading “A SIGNIFICANT SYMBOL”
