E-Cheer: Don't Be Afraid
Not For Sale
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. (Ugh)
Do you have a cat? Apparently there is no middle ground in regard to
cats -- you either love them or hate them. I don't know how big their
brain is, but they seem to do well with what they have. I don't know if

that. We'd like to find the right place to kick to get them motivated.

be afraid." If you are struggling to do your best with what you have,
know that Jesus will say those same words to you -- "I am here. Don't
