Bruce you are a catalyst in people’s lives. Thanks for praying for a family as the latest report is that in the lockdown the family is bonding again. A breakthrough! Praise God. Also praise God for Cardinal Pell’s example of forgiveness and trust in God.
I love the concept of daily surrender to God..consciously so I will do. Thank you.
Daily Surrender is so important to have faith in our Lord to do His will for us.
My mantra everyday My Jesus I surrender my life to you, take care of everything.
Amazing miracles happen Be blessed everyone
