Life is Relationships

I love the quote the Facebook page “By His Stripes We Are Healed” posted, “Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, and a mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith in God.” We have been talking about forgiving and forgetting.Continue Reading
