God Wants to Play

He’s the Most Patient One

But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry, yet so swift to show your faithful love, you are full of abounding grace and truth.

The Kingdom Inheritance: “Has my son arrived, yet?” asks King George to General Woodward. “Yes, Prince Edward should be entering the Palace at any moment, Your Majesty,” says the General. “Good!” says the King relieved. He had summoned his son to the capital city for three days to celebrate the King’s Golden Anniversary. The Prince

His Delight

Our Delight: My recent trip to Disney was satisfying because we had accomplished our purpose.  My parents, sister Jessica and I wanted Henry (Jessica’s son) to have an awesome time on his first trip to Disney. We planned our days for this purpose, even making lunch reservations at The Crystal Palace where Pooh and his
