Unimaginable

How many times have you thought, “How do they cope with this?” I have pondered this question many times during the last week or so, due to a couple of very pressing personal prayer needs: A friend and co-worker of mine and his wife recently … Continue reading

My Body is a Temple.

During lunch last week I sat at the teachers’ table.  I didn’t sit at the paras table.  I’m an equal opportunity diner.  As I sat down, I heard Mr. B….  say, “My body is a temple.”  These words were being spoken by the guy who brings a medium-sized bottle of sriracha sauce from home every … Continue reading
