Today will conclude our time with Angelique’s story and I pray it has been a blessing to you as a reminder that when we may feel all alone, God never forsakes us.

As we continue the topic “Give Us This Day,” today Patti talks about the need for us wanting to know all the details.

It is never easy to try to unravel the meaning of things while in the midst of the story. That’s why I don’t read mysteries. I want to know what’s going on…
