cover lover or lover of the Word?

As a book lover and word crafter, I can appreciate a pretty cover, fantastic graphics or eye catchingContinue reading “cover lover or lover of the Word?”

the gifts along the path

Plumb – Don’t Deserve You Pursuing You I have come to realize is only the result of Your pursuit of me And when I walk away You follow hard after me callingContinue reading “who’s pursuing who?”
