I found myself a few days ago using the common expression: "I am well under the circumstances".

In your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them" (Psalm, 139:16) I was saved when I was about nine years old at a Christian camp near Goiania, Brazil. I know that because I distinctly remember sharing the gospel with one of the kids whose father was a handyman at the camp. He had not attended the previous...

The thought must have crossed King David's mind as he stood at the door of the windowless room and stared at a dark corner, in the direction of the woman he had robbed. He listened to the rhythmic rocking of one in deep mourning. Her disheveled hair - beautiful dark brown curls - haphazardly draped around her shoulders and face.Her tears running down in torrents, carving...
