      ….mmmm Sara, you ARE “one who is full of grace to give others!” Thank you for sharing this with me. It’s so neat that, even though there were technical difficulties this morning with getting over to Relevant Women to read the rest of the story, the timing was perfect:) When you finally read the whole thing, it was God’s perfect timing for YOU, with music and the whole package;) I love how He loves us so individually!
      You are such a precious friend and encourager in my life. Love you and thank you. You are a words girl. It’s so extra special when one words girl encourages another! 🙂
