Welcome to the unofficial start of Summer.

I just finished 2 intense weeks of training for my new job. So I don’t have much to say about this weeks verse, other than I asked for a passing grade on the final and I got it – on the first try.

Matthew 7:7 

God Bless You.

Stay safe this holiday weekend.
