Sunday Thoughts, October 2nd

The sermon from last Sunday has been something that has been on my mind a lot lately. Towards the end of that sermon our pastor mentioned that he woke up that morning with a feeling that people of his church are in some kind of battle. A battle of addiction, grief, loss, or anything in that nature. He then asked for those that are battling with some kind of emotional or physical battle to stand up so him, along with everyone else in the church, can pray for them.

My first upcycle, woohoo.  Here is the before. I started to paint in the corner and then remembered that I needed a before picture!

No more six in the morning hunting. It is laminate but no...Read More
