If there was a steal in the third and final day of the annual NFL draft on Saturday, Quinton Patton might just be at the head of the class.
The former Louisiana Tech University wide receiver had been predicted as a likely second round and no later than third round selection.

Although the recent cold temperatures might demonstrate otherwise, spring has indeed arrived. Trees and flowers are beginning to bloom. Much to the dismay of yard maintenance-challenged folks like me, springtime also means the burden of lawn care.

You may find yourself in a season of life where day-to-day activity can feel like a dry desert, leaving you questioning your purpose. Whenever we experience these life seasons, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy perspective. Our hope can quickly fade to despair, and our expectation that tomorrow will be better can get lost in the doubts that we face.
