    1. Thank you for reading and your kind comments. When I step inside the Bible story, sitting right here in my comfort spot at home, the Bible comes alive and my spirit feels like I am right there in the story. We are so blessed to have the Holy Spirit Who brings all things to remembrance. He is the same yesterday, and today and I love when He opens up an reveals the Door:) Blessings neighbor! Thanks again for stopping by.
