Thank you for leading me to the book: “Come to Me”. It is inspiring me through several crises.
And then today I was led to the Poetry Almanac and the seductive voice of Garrison in a podcast.Wow!
Thank you Jeanne for your kind words. I pray God sees you through this troubling time.

Thanks Jeanne! So pleased you came by and left a comment. I know the author of Come to Me and she will be so pleased that her work inspired!
Garrison Keillor is always a treat, isn’t he!
