Breaking & Prayer…

How broken our world is. Tragedy is reality for so many. And for those who watch from afar, do our hearts break?  In our own backyard do we not see how life is no longer precious – if it’s inconvenient. The unplanned pregnancy, the…

Inside…

Remember the old saying: ‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts’. I thought that meant how good of a person I was or should strive to be. My efforts. Then came a time when I read this: “We are all infected and impure with…
