Forget the Picket Fence

Forget the Picket Fence

You know that white-picket-fence-perfect-life stereotype? Well, I have a white picket fence.  And it's GREEN!  No, we didn't intentionally do it for St. Patty's Day-- but it sure was convenient for this blog post.  Pray this encourages your heart as you press past the White Picket Fence Syndrome.
