Connect with God…

This week, to connect to God, read Luke 3:7-17.  Count all the blessings in your life and think of how many of those blessings we don’t deserve.  Say a prayer of thanksgiving to God for his grace!

Remember you are deeply loved by God and called to share that love with the world around you!

God Bless,

Luke
