To Sum Up September

 "For wherever I am, though far away at the ends of the earth, I will cry to you for help. When my heart is faint and overwhelmed, lead me to the mighty, towering Rock of safety." Psalms 61:2

It's been a crazy month. Thank God that even when the world is a spiraling rat race, that there's still fat babies and a child-loving dog; that there's still fresh air and sun rays and unexpected butterflies; that there's still a place to simply breathe.
