Jer 51v16 – Windy!

Roof Top Tents are an amazing invention for camping. When out in the wilds, you are perched high and away from the dust, slithering critters, hungry lions and other beasts.

Psa 131v2-3 – Like a baby

I have a niece who has twin baby boys. Her boys are active and full of life, but when they are upset or anxious, only one thing calms them down – to be breastfed by their Mom.
