He Cares About Every Single Detail

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is mankind that You are mindful of them, human beings that You care for them? — Psalm 8: 3-4 We have a fire pit in our backyard and one of our favorite things

Be Brave

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. — James 1:17 NIV Everything you have, from your health to your friendships to a roof over your head to the food in your belly, is a gift from God. And

Do all the good you can
