I have not posted here since February 17 and have not done a freewrite since February That is a whole month! OK, I love Alexa. OK, everyone thinks Amazon is taking over the world.

So, I can be having my time with God and a song will come to mind, and I ask her to play it for me during my time with Him. Worship has been great.
