My Mother, My Friend

“Her children rise up and call her blessed.”  Proverbs 31:28 My mom has been visiting for the last couple of days, and I have been enjoying having her here very much!  She has been a real encouragement to me, and I always enjoy just being with her.   I can truly say that I am […]
