Monday Motivation #4

This is the day (and life) that the Lord has made….for YOU.  Don’t waste it watching and comparing what others are doing. It’s OK to not be plugged in all the time, to not know what everybody else is up to. I know it’s so easy to get sucked into, but you won’t miss anything […]
