This Christmas season I find myself reflecting on memories, people who are no longer with us, old traditions and new traditions, but most of all - what it must have been like for young Mary to give birth to...

Salvation, Grace, and Faith

Today I had the pleasure of getting to know Annette, our dog groomer, when I dropped of our beloved girls for their spa day.  Annette said I could stay if I wanted and I did.  It was really nice being able to see her craft in real time.  I must say it is a lot of work, especially with two dogs at the same time.  I have a lot more respect for what she does.  Our dogs are small and very attached to me, so I might have been more of a distraction, but I was thankful for the invite to...
