Jump!

Time for the perennial visit of the little girl who is about to do something she never did before. With talk of children being abused or neglected, this should provide relief to even the skeptical that a Father’s love can be trusted.

The Lions Den

An everyday complaint in blogsville is filed somewhere against  ‘Faith is believing in what you know ain’t true,’ a common  short-sighted idea attributed to Mark Twain. This is usually cited to rail against the scriptures, God, and people of faith.
