My Heart

January 29, 2015

I’ve had something heavy on my heart this past week.  I am writing this today because I realize that there are a lot of people out there reading my bible study blog that do not know me personally.  They may also only read one or two blogs here and there which may only portray a small facet of who I am and what I believe.
