A full to-do list greets me this morning, but I feel like writing. The day ahead is filled with wonder and amazement.

It may be in the presence of my enemies, but my 'dinner guests' are necessary. Compelled to look on, they are amazed to see how God provides. #WhenThePraisesGoUp #BlessingsKeepFallingInMyLap #BlessingsOverWorldlyPossessions Enjoy… Continue reading Blessings Keep Falling In My Lap
"There's no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this." Recent work weeks have been tiring but rewarding.
