Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I love 528!! My husband has spent the weekend making chicken AND beef stocks and oh my, the kitchen is a disaster. It will get cleaned and we will enjoy the stock all year. ;)

You are getting way ahead of me. Hope all is well there, we are in the midst of a blizzard. We are warm and cozy and the animals are secure.
