We have a fox who has decided he or she likes our yard. Just ten feet from our patio he has dug a den. Almost every night we get pictures of him moving about. We have a trail camera that is activated...

I think I should create a Hall of Fame and fill it with interesting souls I’ve met on the road to paradise.  The first person I nominate is an old guy I met at the beginning of my ministry.  He was in his eighties when...
