Make A Splash

Now that I hit the bottom of the bottle – of Dreft – as yummy an aroma as baby laundry detergent might be, I can honestly say I don’t see myself waking up one day and missing the smell of the stuff. This week I finished the last of 11 years of Costco-sized bottles of...

A Good Friday Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank You for this day. For the good we cherished, the parts we failed to find good in and for all Your help through it. But Lord Thank You most of all for Your Son Jesus, our Lord and Savior. We have shown You time and again that we are wicked...
