painful loss

I spent the day yesterday moving “The Sparrow’s Home” cosmetic stuff out of the trunk it has lived in since we moved into the Cottage in ’96. All that’s left of it now resides in one drawer in the studio! The trunk–which I love–has been re-purposed to hold everything I would need to sew! That’s…

the virus?

Asking the Lord for wisdom regarding this stuff this morning.  Holy Spirit sent me to page 473 in my Chronological Study Bible.  He does that sometimes. You see I believe that God’s Holy Spirit is familiar with every word ever written which brings honor and glory to The Father, so when a date or page…
