  • Why did God leave Heaven?

    Why did God leave Heaven? To seek and to save men Why was it necessary for God to leave the glories of Heaven, come to earth to be born of a teenage virgin, put on flesh, live a sinless, blameless life and walk among men for 30 years?

    Let’s look to probably the best known passage of scripture for answers. John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

  • Salads are easy, less time-consuming

    Some meals take hours or even days to prepare, while others only take a few minutes. But don’t let the length of time put in to cooking a meal fool you. Believe me, I’ve made things that took entirely too long to make that I was not impressed with and I’ve also whipped up a meal in 15 minutes that I would serve at a dinner party.
    Some of my favorite spring and summer meals are salads, that take only about 5 minutes to put together but when I’m done, I end up completely satisfied and very pleased with my easy, healthy meal decision.
