Favorite Quote:
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
1 Peter 3:15 

There is a valley of thorns
Of thistles and weeds
Where roses bloom in summer.
A perfect white blossom
Sleeps in tender arms -
With the knowledge of angels
Behind sealed eyelids.
Don't wake up, sweet Rachel
My rose.
The world is too small.
Yet in heaven resides
Your father who loves you
And carries you on strong wings
Until the day your petals close.

It's about my friend's baby sister who was born very recently. I went and visited her in the hospital...babies are amazing creatures!

Whoops, I probably shouldn't have asked you that there. That wasn't really on topic. Dang! I shouldn't have said that either!
