31 Days of Hindsight: Day 15

(Week 30) Reflection: The Bridge

Story behind the painting: A friend recently blessed me with notes from her journal. Most of what I am about to share are her words and not mine. She sent me a drawing with a vision and the scriptures as they poured out of her. She felt it somehow brought clarity and great meaning, knowing […]

(Week 24) Orlando Skyline: Encased in God’s Glory

(Week 5) “Owl” Always Love You!: Sharing Some Momma Wisdom for My Daughter’s 17th Bday

Always Remember “HOO” you are and “HOO’s” you are!
