She mentioned he was going to burn them because he didn’t Read more

God’s Grace ~ Sharing from the Heart

How often do you find yourself in a position to do an amazing thing for someone else? Maybe it’s just sharing a meal, or carrying groceries, or even taking care of a bill for someone. Whether BIG or small, all you do to show  love to someone else really matters. Countless times I’ve been the recipient of someone else making time for me.
