But after you've visited Great-Aunt Rita and some of the others, I think you'll be glad you came. They're always such a blessing to me--and I'm...

Jesus Cares

In just a minute's time, Alaina's beloved pet dog had been taken from her. Kiki had been hit by a car and killed. Alaina was devastated. If Jesus loved her, why had He allowed this to happen? As Alaina lay sobbing on her bed, her mom came in. "Alaina, I know you're upset, and my heart hurts too. But you know who else feels...

Stop fussing," said Mom. "He doesn't like to be picked up when he wants to get at something," said Reed. He smiled as his little brother...
