Beach lessons

Our family went on vacation just this past week.  We were in desperate need of a recharge and reconnect.  Our lives had been full of busy since the last time we stopped to go anywhere and we were feeling like weary travelers in a foreign land.  My husband made a recent change in his ministry… Continue reading Beach lessons
