Yesterday, I was folding laundry and Gresham was sitting on the floor playing with tinker toys. “I’m making a sun,” he said. And I thought, “Well, that’s something nice to make!” (Since they usually make weapons.)

In Psalm 1, the person whose “delight is in the law of the LORD” will be like a “tree firmly planted by streams of water.” We talked about the fact that the only sure foundation for life is God’s Word!
