A reminder to breathe

Oh 2020… So much feels out of control. Overwhelmed is a stop on our daily errand run. Priorities shift like sand through our fingers.

His harmonies

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.
