    We live in a world with many distractions and messages that pull us in many directions. I write to encourage you to slow down and allow your soul to stop and connect with our loving God.

She is the sister with whom ...

What I am learning again and again: God always wants my heart (what Grace!) and my heart wanders like the prodigal when I seek fulfillment apart from him.
