"Naw," the man hollered back, "they ain't been around for years!"
Feeling safe, the tourist swam out in the water. When he was quite far from shore, he shouted back, "How'd you get rid of the 'gators?"
"We didn't do anything," the beachcomber yelled.
"That's strange," thought the tourist.
Then the beachcomber added, "The sharks got 'em."*
My wife and I have just arrived back from our recent trip to Florida – and that safe and sound, I might add. We certainly saw our share of both alligators and sharks. However, we managed to keep our distance from them all.
In any event, it’s good to get away ever so often. But, it’s also good to get back! Thanks to those of you who prayed for us while we were gone. We felt your prayers as we took some much needed time to refresh and renew. Thanks also to those who kept things back home in the middle of the road. It means a lot!
We look forward to resuming our daily routines’ and also to busying ourselves afresh and anew with the Lord’s work.
