When the People Come Knockin’

Today, a very nice Jehovah’s Witness woman came knocking at my door, seeking to share a good word with me. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a religious person approach my home this way. But not too long ago, a nice young lady from a different country came up the steps, rang the bell, and […]


“The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.” ~ Proverbs 11:25 ~ Watering is time-consuming, and it can be expensive. It can seem like a waste, quite frankly.
