What Scripture Says …

Dear readers,

As my recent blogs have indicated, life has presented DH and me with quite a number of challenges. Time to strap on that armor and wield my weapon. In response to the flaming arrows, I’ve delved into the Word of God so I may use my weapon effectively and efficiently. Below are some of the verses I’m clinging to–verses you can store in your spiritual armory.
