In the earthy days of Jesus, money held a godly place among the people. Yet to recognize Him as their greatest wealth, they gave temporal occupants His throne. Coins, metal bits, spent to save, even as the Savior was among them to remove

A few days ago, I was running my route to tend our herd. Maybe having the top down filled me with a greater sense of adventure. Whatever the cause, I rerouted and took a different road. A few miles down, I happened upon a patch of land
