Our lives overload us with a problem of 'too'. We're overwhelmed with too many choices, too many distractions, leaving us with too little time.
2 years. Maybe this wasn't what God had planned for us. Several doctor's appointments, medication prescribed and taken, and no announcement. Damaris and I were feeling discouraged.
