THINKING OF AN ANGEL TUESDAY

” Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some had entertained angels unawares.” Hebrews 13:2 I am in love with angels; heavenly angels, earthly angels, those angels I know, and those I have yet to meet.  This is a story about hope, faith, trust, believing in the goodness of others, and love.

MAGICAL MONDAY MEMORIES

Today was another beautiful day. Low humidity, a clear blue sky, and a sweet calmness meandered around me, filling my heart, to the brim with peace.

DANDELIONS PUFFS

When I arrived home, I satContinue reading “DANDELIONS PUFFS”
