Holly Ridge Happenings
Just A Bedtime Thought
Everything that kept you up last night and stole your rest, didn’t go away just because you stayed awake worrying. Worry and fear will keep you up all night, but Faith makes a mighty fine pillow. You may not have an answer for your situation, you may not see a way out, you may feel like your heart is so broken it can never be put back together, But God does! Do your family and yourself a favor. Give it to God and go to sleep. God’s got this.
