Who knows what the “right” answer is?
I am a rule follower! It is important to me to do what I want, but within guidelines set out for me. You tell me to stay home, then I will stay home.

Almost exactly 3 years ago now a friend of mine passed on. A friend who was like 35 years older than me. I had grown up in church with him as a leader. He lead us in Sunday school, in youth groups and in mission trips. Jim was one of a kind. My heart stillContinue reading “Good Day”

Simply, would I be able to sit down with her and tell her about it. Would the words even be able to leave myContinue reading “Can you tell your Grandmother?”
