The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Pizza for the Heart?

“You need to get your heart checked out,” is what some of my
friends told me.My shortness of breath
and a 20 minute period followed with my heart pounding had alerted me that
something might not be right.

that we could make it home before dark.
We were gaining distance and soon would arrive at our city,
when Robert said, “I have been hankering for one of Papa Murphy’s® combination
Pizza’s, so what do you think?”
I figured to myself, “He needs this,” so I replied, “Why
not?Pizza will be good for our
Actually Pizza was probably not the best choice for dinner -
- but it sure was good!
