Challenge 3 – A Smile and Some Change

…and His banner over me was love. ~ Song of Solomon 2:4 What would a day be like without someone offering a smile and a hello? Several years ago, I was at a low point in my life. I was in a very bad relationship that had damaged some of my family relations and a […]
