  • Give troubles to Jesus, allow him to carry them

    I am reminded of a story that some of you reading this may have heard before. It takes me back to before our first grandchild, Kaylee, was born. She will soon be 13, so you can do the math.

    As some of you know, I like to work with wood and build furniture and things, so I had decided that I was going to build Kaylee all new nursery furniture. It was quite an undertaking, but I set out to build a baby bed, a dressing table with drawers and a chest of drawers. They would all be made by hand and using oak lumber. (Oak is my favorite.)
