Day 23 of the Fruit Fast. Working independently has its perils. But it also has its joys. One of them is being able to work from home. i had business to take care of today on various fronts. All done from home between my computer, my fax machine and my phone. i know that come March i will be hitting the road pretty hard, but being able to work leisurely from home on cold, snowy days is a good thing to me. As my wife was preparing the days school activities for our children, i was in the kitchen eating breakfast with them. i am so thankful to the Lord Christ that, although i grew up in a broken home, He has blessed me with a wonderful family. It is such a joy to be laughing with my children, sometimes they almost make me choke on my food and cry tears i laugh so much. i owe it all to the Lord Christ, in Whom we have Eternal life and eternal joy.
