    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read that Isaiah is our watchman, pointing out dangers.

    Day 199 – Times for War

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we wrap up the book of Joel. He speaks about what will happen after the day of the Lord when justice will once again reign.

    Day 194 – Holy is the Lord

    Thoughts and Reflection Today in our readings we read about a metaphor in a vineyard.
