29 One day when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau arrived home from the wilderness exhausted and hungry. 30 Esau said to Jacob, “I’m starved!

You are not that important.” Galatians 6:2-3 NLT My Pastor did a two part message in Drama. It was so good!

Matthew 6:33, “Seek the Kingdom of God, above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Well, I have not been writing. Shame on me. I totally feel inspired this morning and wanted to share. I have been processing all that has gone on in the last few weeks. Rejection has been a big one …
