Finally Living

My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit... it's time to Finally Live like it!

* Dad had a stroke in May 2012. It was terrifying watching as he struggled for words and for basic muscle function.

You are inspirational! It's great, more than great, that you allow God to use you to minister in this way.

I am leaning this month to lose the sugar. There will be a lot of leaning going on!
