I remember the first time I experienced true peace and contentment. I had a joy I couldn't really explain, to the point where I would cry happy tears. I had never felt such a pure sense of happiness. The most interesting part of it all was that I never knew I wasn't truly happy until … Continue reading Peace, Happiness & Contentment: What does it really mean to be content?
Happy Sunday All. This is a reminder to KEEP PRAYING! Whatever or whoever you've been praying about - don't stop! If you haven't been praying, I encourage you to start now. It will be worth it.

"Be still and know that I am God.." Psalm 46:10. The first scripture that I memorized in children's church when I was about 6 years old. It is one scripture I have never forgotten.
