stretched to the limit, pulled

How often have you been stretched to the limit, felt like you’ve reached a breaking point, or been brought to your knees? Sound familiar anyone…  My favorite part has to be just when you think you can’t handle anymore and God says, “Ah-hum… excuse me, but yes you can!” http://jessiejeanine.com/2011/11/23/the-gardener/ I am a firm believer that […]
