Why do I believe in God? Do you believe in God? How could you believe in a God who allows such things to happen?

What a treasure!

I usually spend the drive to work in quiet. Sometimes in prayer.  Sometimes just thinking about the day ahead. Once in a while I will turn on the radio, but not often.

Dreamy Morning
