Hi April. I was having a hard day today, really hard. And I came to your blog to check it out and saw the bible verse. I just wanted you to know that it made me feel so good to read it. I know it was such a simple thing, but I needed that in that moment. Who would have thought I would find a little peace on someone's blog? :)
Thank you.
