Addressing Life
So much of life goes unnoticed that not noticing becomes a habit.

Life Verse
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. We must remember that we are always being watched, therefore we must represent Christ in every race we run.
