Our friend is here from Nebraska visiting for a week so I need to keep this brief. He is a pastor and evangelist and will be preaching at our church 3 nights this week plus Sunday morning so it's a busy and blessed week!  Hope everyone has a wonderful week and are walking in love, it's the best gift to give and receive!

Thanks for visiting and please remember to pray for the USA!
