Election Aftermath

It got old watching TV ads about why 'Politician A' is so awful and why 'Politician B' is practically a canonized saint.

I got sick of opening my mailbox only to throw away multiple print ads everyday.

St. Peter wrote, 'Don't be surprised that a trial is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you.' (1 Peter 4:12) Christians should expect to be persecuted.

It leaves the question in my mind, 'Is true love possible? Is it real? Can two people stay together ‘Ìâ‰âÂÌâèÏtil death do us part'?' See for yourself. Take a look at this real couple, Danny and Annie, and their 27 year love story; and believe God has something amazing planned for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
