Worship Music

A wonderful and insightful friend introduced me to some amazing new songs that I added to my playlist. For two weeks since: any chance I get, I soak in the goodness of lyrics that point me to Jesus ( the one who saved me from sin and who carries me in my weakness).

Even though I was a little bit wary that if I basked in the corner of the garden for too long the ants would start to pinch I remained in my spot trying to relax and de-clutter my mind.
