Thankful Thursday

Today I find myself completely in awe of the goodness of God. I’m also feeling a wee bit of trepidation towards how this year will unfold. Everywhere there are hallmarks of this being a marked year for me, my family, and, I think, my church. Yesterday, I read a devotional based on Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus […]
