When All You Can Do Is Pray… [#PrayforUkraine]

 Thursday of this past week just felt so heavy… and hard. I had been praying for the Ukraine for several weeks. Specifically, for the team of #StormyGirl’s favorite luxury pajama makers.

Believin’, Trusting God, and Understanding God’s Plan

To BELIEVE is to accept Truth; to feel certain that God is who He says He is—today, tomorrow, and forever!  We can all be encouraged as we experience God moving and working in our lives. Matter of fact, it is through this evidence of God working in the midst of uncertainty in my life, time-and-time…
