Do We Love God or Love What He Did?

Often, when I’m home, my mom cooks for me. I love it, especially when it’s tuna and noodles. (Please don’t judge me.) In fact, she has done a lot of things for me over the years that I have loved. She has done my laundry, completed my taxes, and even cleaned my room—seriously mom, God bless you. Continue reading Do We Love God or Love What He Did?

Until then, I hope you have a blessed week!
