A REALLY, TRULY, FOR REAL MIRACLE FOR ME EVERY DAY – SALVATION STORY #16

I went to a movie with my parents tonight — that seems to be a new American Christmas tradition, doesn’t it?  My dad picked it out — War Horse.  All of the Internet posts used words like “beloved”, “hopeful” and “inspirational that are translatable to our own lives as well when times are tough.”  Who could […]
