Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34
I spent a tough day worrying about the future.
Thinking of my dreams, Craig's dreams, our dreams.
How far out of reach they are.
A friend of mine had this posted on her facebook.
God knows exactly what to say to ease my troubled mind.


kind of blue today.
want to be home.
{all the time}
