While sitting in my doctor’s room waiting for the doctor, I read the following article. As I began to read it, I was thinking “Maybe he won’t come in before I copy the words on this plaque.” He didn’t. I hope it blesses you as much as it did me. It’s not from the Bible, but the truths taught are all in God’s word.
