Greetings!

I wanted to give a word of thanks to those who have supported DSCS with a donation of any kind, including prayers and continued use of the blog!  Through the donations, I was able to remove ads from the blog, and I am grateful.

While ads are not terrible, they can be annoying. And I do greatly appreciate being able to have the blog without ads (especially that I have no control over) showing up at the page.

Thank you!  I appreciate it!
