I know that me sharing that I love “The 60/60/24/365 Holy Spirit” blog series title makes it seem like I am bragging on myself. Honestly, I’m not.

He will even bring back to our memory things that we’ve long forgotten that bring clarity to our present circumstances. But, remember this. The “know-how” comes as we ask.
