It won’t always be like this

REPOST: With all that is happening in the word, in my life, within the four walls of my home, I felt the desire to repost this blog entry.  It has been on my mind a lot lately and I feel the need to put it back out there.   There is a newer song on… Continue reading It won’t always be like this
