    INTRO Ya know, sometimes it’s good for us to get out of our environment to see the glory of God, and to be even more thankful for all he’s done and given, for that which he is doing now, and forevermore will do for all of creation. I have to say, going on vacation last weekend to more

    INTRO News flash: I like food! You know — with a dash of seriousness — it doesn’t take a master chef to see that I’ve had a love-affair with food for some years. I’m like a lot of Americans, I often eat more than I need, in order be “satisfied.” more
