Think of an ant. Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Ants. I often consider them pests. They bite. I somehow end up near them and get bitten. But even then, pest or not, they are very productive. Let’s think about ants for a moment. Here are some … More The ant
It’s now the end of the first month into the new year, but I thought I’d share a few random things about my life, since it’s now 2017. I hold two citizenships.
