This is about as political as I’m going to get. I don’t use social media as a secular partisan platform because I prioritize my citizenship in the Kingdom of God over this fallen, earthly realm. As an ambassador representing that unseen realm, I do what I can – what I see needs to be done, … Continue reading Will Your Vote Count?
First, let me preface this post by saying my husband and I are fine. Our house had no damage. The pictures I’m sharing with you of our yard show minor disruptions, compared to the destruction many other people are suffering as a result of this storm.
