How God’s Wind Blew For Me

Jeff Gratitude 3 Comments

When I converse with those who are not followers of Christ I usually note one thing among others that seems to stand out.  Whether or not they are educated or uneducated, moral or unrestrained, American-born or from another country, there seems to be a common thread that is woven in the fabric of their minds.  What is it?  They all …
