When Crisis Comes Knocking

When Crisis Comes Knocking

  Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. — Psalm 34:19 The sun peered between the trees and slowly emerged from behind the mountains.

Gluten-Free Pasta: The Failure of Perfection

We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness, and affection. ~ Brené Brown The congested traffic curved for miles ahead of me, looking like a winding line of red
