Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right, Spring is STILL Coming. I promise.
WOW! It’s nice out! Yes, I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but our chilly days are just about over. Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!

I may have shared this story with you before, but when my wife and I were planning our wedding, she suggested we reveal to all in attendance words that would convey our LOVE for each other. Some of those words included: Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in ev ...
