This has been a full summer, and I’m not necessarily talking about how busy it’s been. I’m referring to the fullness in my home and my heart. You see, we have had the joy of hosting many people here. We have had our church family here in small and large groups. We hosted prayer meeting, after service fellowship, children’s Bible Club and women’s Bible study. I’ll share the events via some pictures and explanations.

I love adding seasonal decor to my home. Fourth of July happens to fit in with my decor pretty nicely, so I put little splashes in several areas of the living room/kitchen, and then outside as well. Here’s a peek at the inside…

Let’s think about another area in which neglect is deadly…a marriage. It’s so easy to Continue reading “The Cost of Neglect in Marriage”
