Worthy Of Good Things Happening

I got for myself a COURAGE key nearly 2 years ago when my beloved dog of almost 11 years old started getting sick. He was my everything, my best friend, my savior, my baby. He left me in March 2015.

Walking By Faith

My son Jon has fallen in love with a beautiful girl named Hayley this year - and our entire family has fallen in love with her as well! Her birthday is this Friday, October 21, so I got the Faith key for her. She is a living, breathing example of walking by faith, not by sight. Her love for God and her people is what we love so much about her! My prayer is that year 26 for her will be the best one yet, that her life will continue to shine and increase in every way possible. 2 Corinthians...
