Starlight Treehouse - Goodbye 2015.
Just looking at something so peaceful brings a serene feeling of calm. It's not much left to say as 2015 comes to an end. Expectations for 2016 are still reserved, but I look forward to the next chapter as the page turns. The future lies in the hands of God and I'll be here waiting for direction. So long 2015. - The Real Dwayne Allen
