The angel answered [Cornelius], “Your prayers 
and gifts to the poor have come up as a 
memorial offering before God.” - Acts 10:4 (NIV)

Over 200 steep steps lead to the Sacre Coeur Basilica in Paris, France. My daughter Caroline and I climbed those steps to visit the church, located on a bluff overlooking Paris. When we finally made it to the top, we stood on quivering legs and beheld the beautiful panorama.

"One Thanksgiving night there was a shooter in my neighborhood . . .

. . . The police were getting the closest families to evacuate. My house was close enough that we could see things happening but far enough away to be safe.

We invited them to come inside until it was safe. Thankfully, the situation was resolved without anyone getting hurt." Read more from Pockets magazine.
