Sing me a lullaby


Today was ‘one of those days.’ Although, truth be told, most days actually run into the other and are seemingly ALL ‘One of those days’.

My pastor has been speaking on a great practical series involving margins. Margins in our lives, time margins, financial margins, spiritual margins and so on…. its been an enlightening series, one that I have been challenged on significantly.
