Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

An American Goldfinch in my backyard in northeast Iowa. USA
It’s snowing here . . . again!! However, I will not look back to what
the cold, winter has been, instead I will look forward to what spring will be!!

2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
