Multitude Monday

I knew it would happen.....

I proclaimed rejoicing.....

.....and things happened.....

.....and I didn't always want to rejoice.....

.....and I didn't always rejoice.....

.....but I will now count them as blessings and rejoice!

    it is wisdom to know that in severity is beauty – you clearly have wisdom.
