PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I have no idea who wrote the quote on today’s graphic, but it’s one of those quotes I wish I could claim. “Long before Zacchaeus couldn’t see Jesus, the tree was already planted to meet his need.” There is so much brilliant truth in this sentence.

I don’t collect much anymore, but at various times, I’ve collected thimbles, coffee mugs, sheep, dolphins, and movie / book memorabilia.
