Crazy Bread

Recently, I went into Little Caesar’s needing 5-6 pizzas and saw a sign reading: “Free Crazy Bread!” The thought consumed my attention (thoughts) & captivated my affection (desires). I wanted free Crazy Bread – that’s all I could think about. I pray that this message is to you what that sign was to me…

My Life . . . Connecting the Dots
