LETTING GO 4/9/2021 FRIDAY

I love GRACE! I love that faith tells me that God’s mercies are fresh and new each morning. I love that grace means forgiven and restored.

What is there to fear? April 2, 2021 GOOD FRIDAY

Rough start this morning culminating someone who had more red x’s than green stars sneaking dog food into my coffee. Luckily, he tells on himself and I didn’t actually drink it, but I just felt defeated.
