What I Want to Remember, but Sometimes Forget…

Remember Series

There are lessons I think I have learned. And then I forget them. Which is why I need those Jordan River Stones. To remind me of what God has done, What He’s already accomplished. And I also need reminding of what He has taught me over the years. So… Today is the start of a [Read More…]
