We had made the decision just before midnight. Since one-third of our family would not be home on Sunday, we would worship at Bedside Baptist on Sunday morning. It had been one of those weekends where “sleep” had not been a priority and since two-thirds of our family is actually still four people [...]
They come every day - just like the sun rise. Sometimes the clouds prevent us from seeing it. But it still comes.

I love watching the day unfold – ESPECIALLY the most ordinary of ones.
There’s this girl I know…
