Be Light

In this journey of grief, I have gone from a semi-comatose to fully tender heart. The Lord has widened my vision far beyond myself to see His working in everything. Everyone has a story, a line untold, a pain deep within. No one is intentionally cruel for no reason. It comes from somewhere. It...

to know the tender

it’s the first day of school, or it’s a team-building exercise at work, or it’s some cheesy church function, and it’s time to get to know one another.  and the slip of paper before you asks:   if you were an animal, what animal would you be? [i’ll give you a second to think about it…]  ...
