A Little Birdie Told Me . . .

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Like a bloodhound, I… Continue reading Three Baby Skunks and a Birthday Party

Our Fur Babies

She’s a jumper; a straight-up, five-foot jumper! I’m not kidding, she can jump as high as my head and I’m 5’3”.… Continue reading Our Fur Babies
