A Motion Pictured Vision

In the first visual picture frame, she stood looking helplessly at herself in the bureau mirror. White powered, caked on makeup masked her face. The lip stick she wore was a bright, ruby red. Large, dark black curls rest on her shoulders. Fleetingly in another visual frame, her facial hue appeared extremely pale as if […]

The Voice of Love, Life

The activities of the day had shutdown. And the hour for my devotions was at hand.
