Two Doves

A new journey begins when God calls you to fly Come away with me, for you are mine. He comes as the dove to fetch you with His love to bring you to the place that no eye has seen nor ear heard what He has prepared for the one He loves. Vim 7-17-2017    …

Look and Live

Worthy of all honor, all glory, all praise.
