Hi Saija,...I've enjoyed hearing some of his messages on the radio. Solid Bible teaching is so needed..especially as the days grow darker and evil becomes bolder. Hope you've had a pleasant day...tomorrow I hope to get back to my cello & spinning. Both have been badly neglected lately. Oh dear...

susie ... i'm glad you are taking the time to read & veg out .... :o) ... you busy girl! ... if you read the good life book, be prepared to get totally annoyed at the way "we" are getting sucked into secularism - sometimes in the most innocent of ways ... argghh!
