Weekend A La Carte (November 27)

May you know and experience the Lord’s blessings this weekend.

(Yesterday on the blog: Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021 Deal for Christians)

What Keeps Couples Apart?

Stephen Witmer: “Despite the beauty and blessedness of true intimacy, I’ve encountered numerous obstacles to it — both in my own marriage, and in years of counseling married couples. One of the most common is busyness.”
