Back to the Simple Life

Being a new Mom again has sure reminded me of God's blessings.   I had forgotten over the past 4 years how much quiet time you have while up nursing at night or during the day.   All that quiet time and bonding time with baby has strengthened my time with the Lord as well.&nbs…
