ROUND: When You Say Farewell
My 11-month-old grandson is learning to wave goodbye. He has said, “Bye-Bye,” once. Only two people, including myself, were witnesses to those spoken words. It was exciting to share the news with his parents, who have not heard him say those words yet.

Don’t Worry Your Prayers
Recently, a friend shared her prayers and revelation concerning her adult children and grandchildren, who were traveling to Mexico to visit family. The two adults and three children had set out on their journey around 4 p.m. on a Friday. Because of the threat of thunderstorms, my friend was concerned. Before going to bed that evening, she lifted her family in prayer. However, she was still nervous about their journey until she received a text message around 9:45 p.m. from her daughter.

The church was a mystery to the Jews and was not mentioned in the Old Testament but rather was established after the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ.
