I am not a city girl
I’m not a city girl. A city is where a nurse abducted me the day I was born. Ironically, I spent the last 14 years as a critical care nurse. The city is also where I was molested at the age of 4 and where I had a gun pointed to my face at the…

Surely, letting go is hard. But letting go of a person God put in your life and giving them back to the Lord takes divine strength & none of it makes any sense. But. The Lord our God is faithful til the end. I will rest in that promise.
