During April 2021 I will be posting about some of the many specific personal tender mercies that God has shown me throughout my life. I have much to be grateful for, and I invite you to follow along starting on Thursday, April 1, 2021.

And the Lord called his people ZION, because they were of one heart and one mind, and dwelt in righteousness; and there was no poor among them.
The Old Testament prophet, Enoch, the son of Jared and the father of Methuselah, was a righteous leader who led his people in righteousness. The Lord blessed the people and their city, Zion, the City of Holiness, flourished. In time, because of the righteousness of this people, they were taken up to heaven to abide forever.
And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Today, it is the goal of those who truly follow the Lord, Jesus Christ, to live a life that is worthy to be part of a ZION society, a place where love and charity abound. We strive to make our homes and families, our neighborhoods and our communities places where we love and serve and help one another, where the gospel of Jesus Christ is taught and lived to the best of our ability. No, none of us are perfect, but we hope to do our part to make our corner of the world, wherever it might be, a better place to live.
Therefore, verily, thus saith the Lord, let Zion rejoice, for this is Zion -- THE PURE IN HEART; therefore, let Zion rejoice . . .
