The Secret Cave Of Robinwood

Monday, December 10, 2012
Suddenly the green curtain was pulled aside. “What’s going on in here? What are you doing in my cave?” Mark gasped and held his breath. Patti looked around, bewildered, squinting as her eyes adjusted to the darkness. Everyone remained still. Obviously no one knew how to react to her sudden appearance. Patti scanned the gawking faces. Then she saw Mark, and her eyes widened. “You told!” she cried out. “You promised you wouldn’t tell.”

Matthew 5:36-38 – Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
