Holy Moments Tucked Into Your Every-day-ordinary

It’s 9 o’clock at night at the time of this post. I’m exhausted. There are crumbs beneath my flip-flops. I feel them with every step. I hate crumbs on the floor. The science book and binder rest on our dining room table, along with a pink doll car, a headband, a protractor, a paper hole […]

Living IN The Blessing
