One of my favorite classroom memories as a teenager was when my Math teacher would ask me to help erase the black board. The board/slate would look clean once again ready for the next lesson to be taught. Have you wished for a DO OVER in life? A CLEAN SLATE?

This picture was taken when my husband and I visited Kerala, India also known as God’s Own Country. The place was filled with the nature’s aroma, serenity, and was absolutely breathtaking. The reflection of the Sky/Heaven upon the water/Earth made it look as if they were United together. This beautiful view reminded me of the Designer of the Universe who created the Heavens and the Earth. A Creator who is eternal, infinitely wise, powerful, good, and HE IS MY GOD!
