Run Away Thoughts
on May 1st, 2022
I have a beautiful Pomeranian puppy named Bentley. In training him, I expectsome accidents, and I can deal with that. However, Bentley loves to control hisenvironment and do his business everywhere he likes without restrictions. Thisincluded non-compliance to the potty paper.

What is the Church
on April 24th, 2022
This past Sunday was Resurrection Sunday. We had a delicious breakfast andenjoyed wonderful fellowship with each other. A lot of our saints whom we hadnot seen since the COVID-19 started joined us.
