WHAT Was I thinking????

We all have ‘that place’ that helps us clear our thoughts. My place is definitely anywhere – out in the country. I recently took a walk on a country road with my husband, and we talked about – everything. He asked me what I thought about last week’s sermon at church, and I asked him […]
