A Little Bible Bath

Lately, life has been proving that nature is not enough. I have finished up my school year of substitute teaching, had a birthday, and have focused (maybe too much) on being active.

A Glimmer of Hope (aka cute dogs)

I am not going to lie to you all (well, the like 3 people who stumble upon this post), I have been discouraged lately. I’m not entirely sure why either.
