Beautiful Brunch at Poppy Seed, Newtown

Praise God It takes a lot for me to praise the Lord. I grew up Roman Catholic in Chicago. It was other people who went around praising the Lord.

Yes, I could sense the presence of God when there …

Demystifying The Prophecy About The End Of The World Everything that God created has a natural lifespan. Invigorate things are created. They mature then grow old and die.
