In the Midst

In the Midst

  I saw a quote on Twitter recently and I cannot get it off of my mind. “God has landed on this enemy-occupied world in human form.” C.S.

Anchors

  “When your children grasp for something to hold onto in the middle of the storm, they will reach for the anchor of your family.” “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw.

Linger at the Manger

Linger at the Manger
