Only a mother’s love

I remember a few years ago I was in San Augustine when I notice a bird’s nest underneath the courthouse pavilion. As I stared at it, wondering what kind of bird had built it; I saw something move from within the nest.

Another said, “’I have just bought five pairs of oxen, and I want to try them out. Please excuse me.”’
Another said, “I now have a wife, so I can’t come.” Luke 14:16-20 Continue reading
