ShepherdDave needs a reality check

every morning, and all day long.  I wake up thinking that what I see with my eyes is reality.  But there’s way more to reality.  Scripture says Jesus is behind everything and everyone, and THAT reality is way-more important to my happiness than what I see on Facebook, TV, email, or as I’m walking, driving, or talking with someone.
