Dear Abby: Wrong number leads woman to think she’s met Mr. Right

Dear Abby: I met a guy over the phone when he called my number by mistake. After a brief conversation, not particularly polite on my part, the call ended. Forty-five minutes later he called me back, saying he couldn’t stop thinking about me. I thought, “Who is this goofball?”

Dear Abby: Living together may end long-distance engagement

Dear Abby: My fiance, “Derrick,” and I have been engaged for almost a year. The whole time we’ve been together he has been overseas. While he has many of the characteristics I look for in a man, he isn’t as down-to-earth as I’d like him to be.

A Life with God | Harvest is a joyful season

If this were a movie, a joyful song and dance would be added. Harvesting is a happy time. Hard work from daybreak as farmers share a thrashing machine and wives join the work. But grain safely stored in a silo is like mass evangelism’s responders in God’s care.
