Lesson stems from flower story

I wonder what the world would see if there was a hidden video camera in the kitchen of most homes. No, I am not talking about cleanliness, pots and pans. I am thinking of how common courtesies are not present in our family.

Life can be ultimate carnival ride

Seek the crown, preach the gospel -- part 1

This command was given by our Lord prior to his ascension back into heaven. "And he said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
