His Trademarks

 
 
'Don't let the wise brag of their wisdom.
 
Don't let heroes brag of their exploits.
 
Don't let the rich brag of their riches.
 
If you brag, brag of this and this only:
 
That you understand and know Me.
 
I'm God, and I act in loyal love.
 
I do what's right and set things right and fair,
 
and delight in those who do the same things.
 
These are My trademarks.'
- Jeremiah 9:23:24 {The Message}

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
