If your Latin is a little rusty, here's the translation: Man proposes, but God disposes.

In Him, they... Continue Reading →

Our Good Shepherd – Exodus 12-14; Psalm 23

For nearly 400-years the children of Israel had lived in Egypt. Initially, I can see that God allowed them to move there to survive the drought occurring throughout the region.
