Went back to Northern Ireland for my free week, good to be back. Good to see friends again.  I will tell my children (God willing) about the great times I have spent with my friends. No greater love have I felt on the people of the earth than the love of Christ’s Elect.  I mean I was sitting in the Parkes’ kitchen, and I just thought, these people share no blood with me, I knew none of them as I was growing up, I shared no education with them, and I am in their house at the seat of honour being fed like a king. If I wasnt holding the fort together I think I could have wept with joy and humility before God.  How great His love and grace to me. To be surrounded by those who love me…and I know that they love me. Fellowship with God-fearing, humble people is such a thing to be sought and the small house in Co Antrim, with a small fire and some tray bakes and tea is a great place to be…
