because when doors close…

…there is room for faith-legs to become strong.  I’ve had two opportunities I had applied to close this week. Today is the mark that says we have 1 month until we graduate on May 19. I say we, because I’m not the only one. There are at least 200 seniors graduating with undergrad degrees, and…
