This morning, Kelly said to me, “My former colleague, Ala, always pays attention to some trifles and delves on some insignificant problems in her work.

My wife and I are believers of the Lord Jesus. The Bible says: “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content” (1 Ti 6:8).

Shortly after believing in the Lord, I read the Book of Matthew 25:6, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him.” I believed that the Lord would return at midnight when we were asleep.
