Let the Little Children Come

I smiled, watching Natalie dance around the family room to an old Steve Green CD. I sang along, remembering the words of songs I had grown up listening to. One song in particular stood out to me... the words of "Let the Little Children Come" stuck in my head and in my heart. It's a … Continue reading Let the Little Children Come

But there's another kind of waiting... … Continue reading Waiting for the Promise (Hebrews 11 Series, Part 4 of 4)
