The Bible is full of soothing sayings. I liked the way you expressed them.

This is so encouraging! I can't think of a single person I know who isn't being rocked by at least one of those things on that list. I love the way you paced that and mixed scripture with personal expression. I especially love the one about the tattoo. SO true. Great work!
