Rest

I've been bogged down by assignments, deadlines and an abundance of stress. My mind is all over the place. College has [...]

Back in October the local Anglican church had roofers come in and put new shingles on this heritage building. It's the oldest church here in our city. Isn't it a charming little church?

Unreceptive Without God we are dim Truly stumbling in the dark Seperated  Blind Far from His heart. Till He opens our eyes  And fills us with life  Our spirit is unreceptive  To [...]
