Holly Ridge Happenings

Jesus, I whispered as I knelt down to pray. I called out the name of Jesus and nothing else did I need to say.

When Cardinals appear,

But God’s word remains the same!


Thanks to those of you who called to tell me how much you enjoy my news, I only wish I had more. Maybe soon.
