3:13 – Playing Peek-a-Boo With God #faithbites #faithjourney Peek-a-Boo Not sure why, but today I was thinking about games we play as a child. I instantly thought of Peek-a-Boo as it’s an odd game.

Dec 14 – When Is It God’s Voice?

2:348 – When Is It God’s Voice? #faithbites #faithjourney voice I had a conversation with a good friend today. When something we hadn’t planned happened, I said it was Gods voice.
