this much

How much does God love you? One of my fondest childhood memories is of my dad asking me and my sister if we knew how much he loved us. This much? – he would say as he open his arms a little bit. Thiiis much?  He would open his arms a little bit wider. Thiiiiiiiiiis  much!  And […]

Distractions
