Hope In God

If you are alive, you will feel undoubtably feel pain. A friend of mine was reminded of this on Saturday when he fell off the scooter he was performing a stunt on and injured his hip. He got a pretty sure reminder that he was indeed still alive! But the pain we face in life … More Hope In God
