The front, while not perfect, isn’t in too bad a shape, but the back yard in places looks like a desert.

  • Back when country music was country music, Tanya Tucker had a song named, “It’s a Little too Late to do the Right Thing Now.” Of course Tanya was singing about her rowdy life, but in life it is never too late to come to God in prayer and repentance.
