imagenew born deer found by

the side of the road where

its mother lay still

 

My special needs girl has gotten needier.  That means I am now more needy too.

 

“I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8 NKJV
