I got to Kroger and as I stepped out of my car, I reached for my journal on the passenger seat and WHOOPS! IT’S NOT HERE. I had left it at Costco, probably on the baby/toddler seat plastic thingie on the cart, because my journal’s pink and I might not have noticed that I left …

I haven’t been able to blog much lately. Busy with several projects and expect to remain this busy until the latter half of the year. Also need to declutter my digital space badly, so for a while, my posts here will probably consist of compilations — articles I’ve read and saved on various notepads (by …
Growing in our spiritual life means that we sometimes need to do hard things. Leaving Facebook was one of those things for me.
