She lost herself moments like this. The old porch, refreshed with her welcoming style, had this effect on her. PaintContinue reading “A Paragraph about Mabel”
Yesterday, WordPress alerted me about reaching the 1000 likes milestone. Thank You! When I first started writing this blog, I had a goal of at least reaching one. What a blessing to know God has blessed it 1000 times! On that note, I haven’t written in a while, at least on here. I have startedContinue reading “1000 Likes! Thank You!”
