Word-rocks hurt and crush the spirit

Empty nest-makes room for more of God’s best

by Rhonda Barrett ~   EMPTY. Empty Nest. Gary and I didn’t notice it…when all our family lived in Oklahoma or when we lived down the street from one of our sons and his family in Florida.  But since moving to Washington State…we’ve felt it. Empty Nest. It has taken a while to get used […]
