  1. I love that quote from Edith Cavell. She is such a great example of how God wants us to react to people that hurt us. To have no hatred or bitterness toward anyone. I know that's easier said than done, but with the Holy Spirit helping us we can try to strive toward that.


Thank you so much for commenting! They just make my day!
God bless,
