Meditating and Memorizing ~ Philippians 1:18-20

I come from a long line of great “expectators.” The women in my family, including my daughters, all have grand plans that we like to see come to fruition. Not only do we want to see our plans fulfilled, we want to see them fulfilled the way we want to see them fulfilled. When our […]
