  • We learn about love in the family first, and that is not always a good thing. I found these notes from an anonymous mother in Austin, Texas.

  • Diane Harrington, of Milwaukee, Ore., had just lost her job. Money would be very tight for awhile. When she returned to the copy store she was so relieved that an honest clerk had set her wallet under the counter with all her money in it. She left the store only to find her car missing. No one had seen it stolen. While she was on the phone with the police a couple hurried into the store, with big smiles they declared, “Your car is not stolen. Come out and see this.”

  • Last Sunday we lifted up our prayer requests and celebrations. There were a lot of prayers for people whose loved ones had died or were dying. There were a couple of 40-something parents who were dying of cancer. We prayed for them and their children. There was the infant who died in a tragic accident. She was the only child her older parents were able to have.
