Like most Americans, Cliff and I have spent the past 24 hours glued to the t.v. watching the coverage of the tragedy in Nice, the attempted military coup in Turkey and wondering what the heck is happening in our world! Seriously makes me want to hug my almost grown babies a little tighter and pray for our world. But, sandwiched in-between the international news coverage was … Continue reading Refreshing Difference
Late last spring and into the summer months I wrote a handful of blog posts that I never published. I am sure I did this intentionally as we were in campaign mode and I was a little paranoid…or protective…. or tired of being in the fish bowl….
