The Power of Community

Good morning!

Let Your Light Shine

Good morning! We have the most beautiful, thick frost covering everything here this morning.  It's been a cold, humid, gloomy kind of morning...and then...the sun peeked out from behind the darkness to show itself in all its brilliant ways.
