    Dear Robert, Leslie, Carol, Andrew, Lisa, Anita, Alex, Annie, Steve, Bruce, Jeff, Daniel, and ALL WHO LOVE OUR LORD JESUS; I am very blessed by reading what you wrote. I hope this most dreadful and troubled time we are in just now passes quickly; for I am so looking forward to me and my wife meeting and knowing you all! The Lord bless you all and keep you healthy and strong and safe till He comes.
  • Robert J. DeHaan
    This beautiful and profound Psalm, as is all of God's Word spoke to my spirit in a mighty way. It caused me to meditate on what the importance of those faithful, that have walked with God who have gone before us. It is good to be reminded that God knows the secrets of our hearts, that nothing is hidden from our Heavenly Father. Let us boast in the Cross of Christ each day of our lives. Praise God!
  • Leslie Brown

    We all must Remember that God is Our help in times of troubles and there is nothing done that will not be revealed. Life lessons are Gods instruction and instruments to God's Divine Graces!!

    OF COURSE. BECAUSE THE EYES AND EARS OF GOD THE FATHER, ARE EVERY WHERE, AT THE SAME TIME. OMNISCIENT AND OMNIPETENT.
