Gateway Friends

Here's some funny trivia that may not be that helpful:  Today (6/22) is National Chocolate Éclair Day and National Onion Rings Day.  Crazy, right?!  If you needed an excuse to eat either one of these delicious treats, now you have permission from the "National Day of" organization.  If you want to meet for lunch, I'm available.

Some truth that may be much more helpful: This is the day the Lord has made and He loves you!  Psalm 34:8 reads; Taste and see that the Lord is good.  Oh, the joy for those who take refuge in Him.  Friends, this summer, join me as we hunger and thirst for God's presence.
