Reading in the Book of 1 Samuel, we meet another of God’s chosen servants, Hannah, whose soul longed for a child. We learn she was a consecrated woman and had a good and faithful heart. For those that know the back of the book, we are aware that God honored her sincere request and allowed Hannah to become the mother of Samuel, the earliest of the great Hebrew prophets after Moses and the last of the judges. Her story breathes of her love and care for her firstborn.

Q. Does a store have the right to limit who may park in its parking lot? Isn’t this public property? Can I be towed for parking where I shouldn’t?

Damon is handsome now and on his way to being a big, strong, manly cat. Adorable just won’t cut it. You just have to love his distinctive black and white spotted coat, especially with that little goatee and the cute spot on his nose. Damon is lovable, companionable, and a good natured guy, as well. He might act just a little bit timid in new situations with unfamiliar surroundings and noises, but give him just a minute and he’ll settle right in – especially if you hold him in your arms and cuddle him! He also enjoys running around and playing.
