Between Me and God - 23Mar09

If something exciting happens in our lives, we tell people about it, right?  But have you ever wondered if you should?  The first story is an account of a life changing faith experience and confirmation that it was meant to be shared.

So if stories are supposed to be shared, how about a story of angels.  For the second story, MIllie shares how she felt the presence of angels in her room when she gave her heart to the Lord.
