  1. Sandra, this was a great post until you put in the words self control. Sorry, but, I do not know the meaning of those words. Boy do my feet hurt. How did you know that I needed to hear that? Some thing that I need to work on. I just got back form my aunt’s last night and was blessed to find all of your post for me to read. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for letting God use you in a powerful way. Merry Christmas my friend. Love you gal. Kathie
