With All Your Heart
The man stepped into the department store and took a quick look around. He was there for one thing, and he wanted to make it snappy.
He never really cared for Valentine’s Day, seeing it as a mandate from society telling him how to love.

It is my goal this year to do just that - listen to Him and just be still long enough to actually hear Him.
