elizabethesther It's hard to wait. It's especially hard to wait for the Lord. God's deliverance doesn't look like mine---which is to say, it doesn't look like chocolate cake. The deliverance of the Lord is so much sweeter. It heals my broken heart. It binds up the wounds of my soul. It's a river of grace into the dry, thirsty land of my need. The goodness of the Lord is available to me right here, right now in the land of the living. Thank you, Jesus. 2h

elizabethesther I love watching them play. Penelope is fully capable of flipping Rico over and pinning him, but she lets him "win" about 90% of the time. Maybe she feels bad that he only has 3 legs. :) p.s. Don't worry, they never actually bite each other. Nobody ever gets hurt. 2d
  •   katcdw Or Penelope's definition of "winning" is not having to get up off the floor. 2d

  •   gr8scott91 I read about all this going on and literally had a feeling of rage- not against Just Josh, but against the church that validates him, that says we should essentially look the other way in love, all the while shutting down and using up so many souls. God help Anna and those children. 2w
