    Jim Hill: I hope all things are well. No matter why we walked away? The Father has opened Arms, waiting for our return! All his children one time or another sIn. Not like we did before salvation, for in Christ we sin a lot less! Thank you Lord for 1John 1:9. Some of us even take a walk for one day,one week, one year--? The Father is calling tenderly,gingerly come home. The end is in sight
