He wants us to give our dreams, desires and every detail of our lives -- everything that matters most to us -- to him, trusting him to meet our needs...

I recall Dr. Graham's words as the lakefront wind chilled me to the core: "If you would die tonight, do you know where you'll spend eternity?"...

Instead, another plant called ragweed which relies upon wind for pollination and blooms at the same time as goldenrod, is a major hay fever culprit. Goldenrod and ragweed often grow near one another...
