The Abundant Life: P2

I keep expressing that good things can come out of bad things. Perhaps I haven't expressed this on my blog. I'm uncertain. Nevertheless, it's about time that I proved it. It's no secret that I've really been struggling during this pandemic.  I never realized how much impact those family gatherings had on my life. During [...]

Parentage: Part 4

Parentage: Part 4
