I took a look at my stats this morning and kinda tripped... Someone decided to sit down a read for a while. I pray that, whoever you are, you found something worth taking to heart. They didn't like or comment...they just read. And that's cool. Thank you for stopping by and reading! I'm honored you… Continue reading Someone Was Busy Reading Yesterday

Grab your coffee, some chocolate, some tissues and read this powerful heartfelt story of God’s Lights.
“Can you see the stars from outside?”
“No. Not with the lights on.”
