Today in my devotional it was talking about sacrifice. "For love seeks not her own, and to please me you will sacrifice your personal wishes whenever they run counter to My highest purposes for your life." I only know that my purpose is to be an available vessel that He will work through. That is what Kelsey did.

God truly smiled on Saturday. As this blog goes along, you may see more...
