Today I read an inspirational quote by Flora Whittemore, “The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.” I love this!

I think more about our “Creator God” in the springtime. It is hard not to as the season changes from winter to spring and the earth warms, and buds on the trees begin to open, and daffodils in our gardens begin to bloom. Warm days invite us to open our windows, and they call us […]
