The warmth of sisterhood felt as women of all ages huddled in His name for His name. We laughed with each other, shared stories and chatted.
Time ticked and the evening moved. An opportunity opened for us, His daughters to be courageous, to dig in and expose our hearts-Sisterhood raw and pure.

If a space of time creates messiness and heart break, I plead with you to remain in the Bread of Life.
Accept the hour and cling to everlasting love. Desire His ways with an obedient heart. He can redeem any situation-Your situation.
