I have had some extra time this week to talk with God about this year and the year ahead. I know we will all be seeing many blogs writing about the new year and resolutions and I was going to skip it. Then, God guided me to:
“If they, why not I? If these men and women could become saints, why cannot I with the help of Him who is all-powerful?”
If you enjoy these wonderfully delightful tales as I do, here is the beginning of two Roads of which I posted a much later episode the other day- may not have been here but on jessica’s blog I’ll link in when I have it – here it is no 10
Lloyd Wright wasn’t the first boy Cassie Merrill had let go that far, just the one Ma caught her with. Right off, Ma sent Jep running for the preacher.

This should worry us. A major Jewish sociologist reports that “non-Orthodox Jewish trend lines resemble the trend lines for American Catholics and Mainline Protestants.” Hebrew Union College’s Steven M. Cohen then explains: “They’re all marked by declining adherents and participation.”
Using data from Pew Foundation studies, Cohen has found that Orthodoxy is growing, and growing younger. The Orthodox movement has 230 ten-year-olds for every 100 fifty-year-olds. The non-Orthodox (Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist) have only 70 ten-year-olds for every 100 fifty-year-olds.
