Sunday, June 17, 2012      3 comments

Temptations all around. No wonder "they" say don't go to the store on an empty stomach! Temptations were certainly calling me. However, God all put other distractions in my way: the woman at the checkout line in front of me who could not get all... Read more
Improvements
