Hello dear friend,
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Amid the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic there has never been a more important time to remember that God loves you!
You are His beloved child whom He created and His Holy Spirit dwells within you. It is human to feel fear right now but remembering God's loving presence regularly throughout each scary day offers an oasis of peace.
You may well have read the Love Letter below but now you might like to print it out and read it often for courage in adversity.
May God continue to bless you and your family and keep you all safe from this dreaded virus.
