There’s a reason this blog has the tag line, "where my heart and His Story collide". That reason is because it often does. Collide, I mean... my heart and His Story. Not His fault, of course. Always mine. But, because it does, I get stuck. I get stuck in His Story because I’m forever trying… Continue reading The Hurry Up and Wait
Favorites are funny. No rhyme or reason, sometimes fickle and flimsy, but they remain favorites all the same. And, love stories? Well, we all love a good love story.
