Will you say yes? And YES?

  1. Thank you Christine. Living in the Southern Hemisphere & now heading into Winter, I see around me the deep reds of Autumn leaves, once again reminding me of the cool, refreshing days ahead. It is always somewhat of a relief after our long hot summers. Now I can rug up during the day & sleep well in my cozy bed at night. God is good!
