SCRIPTURE FOR FEB: Ephesians 3:16-19 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
and speaking of making movies: My time capsule for the entire month of February can be watched here and the secret word is: love
And it is here when I finally realized how much the sun means to this California girl.
