Hi James, Good to see you back as well. All is well with me. My kids keep me busy, plus I've taken on a lot of volunteer work and have started looking for a part-time job. Wish me luck in this economy!!
You have a great heart and love of God and I enjoy your posts.
Remember the parable of the wheat and the tares? You do have the opportunity and means to cultivate the field of your heart, to allow the wheat to grow. (Although as God told Adam, it will take some effort--by the sweat of your brow will you eat bread.)
