We have had an amazing weekend, but the kind that wrings you out and leaves you limp and tired.
While my body wants to stay in bed sipping comforting hot drinks and watching nonsensical Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel, my heart is full of hope and happy expectation.
We had a whole weekend full of ministry at our church and saw so many people set free from past wounds, bondage, guilt, sin and unforgiveness.
There is nothing as rewarding as seeing people encounter the love of God and experience wholeness!
I’ve taken the Joy Dare.
I’m counting one thousand thanks in one year.
I hunt for thanksgiving using the prompts Ann gives us each month.
