The faithfulness of God

I turn 70 today. And I have found Psalm 100:5 to be so true! “For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” Just looking back the past few decades, LaVerne and I have been amazed at the faithfulness of God in our lives, in our family, and in the lives of those we love [...]
