I opened the box, pulled out the priceless bundle and cried as I looked through photos spanning over 60 years.  A childhood friend of Gary’s found out, through a Facebook post, about the fire we had in 1996 that destroyed most of our pictures.

God was waiting for me

God was waiting for me

by Rhonda Barrett ~   The first day of 2018, I was laying in bed…waking up. I could sense the Holy Spirit drawing me like a magnet, a gentle magnet, wooing me to my prayer closet. I sat up in bed and whispered, “I am coming.”   I got out of bed, wrapped my bathrobe […]

Just a text message…made a BIG difference!

Just a text message…made a BIG difference!
