Care to journey with me through Daniel?
The next few posts will include a few “ah-ha’s” the Lord has given me recently through this amazing book of the Bible. It’d be great to have you along for the journey, sweet friend. If you so desire, read chapter 1 first, then come back here and we’ll “compare” notes and encourage one another.
