Welcome to a regular feature Tuesdays here at The Confident Mom, Ten Minute Tuesday. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this song!! Just sit and close your eyes – let the song speak to you – HE is enough – Always Enough by Casting Crowns. The line that speaks to my heart right now…… “hope for the orphan”…..

I hope it encourages you today and gives your spirit a lift.
