A few hours in our nation's capital did my soul some good today. Fewer places excite me more than the National Mall, so my heart was happy as I meandered through the monuments and museums. My particular favorite sights: the Lincoln Memorial, the First Ladies' Gown Exhibit, and Dorothy's Ruby Slippers! The metro, snowy city streets, new friends from around the world, Christmas decorations, and good food made for a spectacular day. And I got to tell a few people about Jesus along the way! It's not always a popular opinion, but I sure do like this country of mine!
