Christmas Eve I was wondering how I was the lucky one to pull the short straw and work two Christmas’ in a row. But without further thought, I decided I would make it a great day. My coworkers and I spent all day laughing, so much so I almost peed in my pants. But as…
But Jesus makes my heart beautiful
Insecurities. Yes, today we are going to talk about insecurities of our past and present, because there’s no room for them in the future.
