It’s Sunday. We’re back home. And there’s nothing like being in our home church on Sunday morning. We choose to worship no matter where we are–and we’ve been blessed to worship in […]
Some of you have read and followed my blog since the beginning (and I thank you!). If you remember how it all started, it was during the time that my father-in-law was […]
