Beginnings have endings, as day turns to night; the circling of Earth brings hope of “yet to be.” … More After the Squall – Look, See, Pray
Patterns made by the receding waves have amazing variety: it’s the unique combination of wind, wave strength, tide height, phase of the Moon and the force of gravity. Probably a few other variables too! … More Always… Look, See, Pray
I just received a brief thank you note for a devotional I wrote for 6th May. I sometimes wonder if the stuff I write makes any difference, so you can imagine how much that note encouraged me.
