A Very Good Friday

There was a restlessness in the crowd. In-between the awkward taunts and jeers the only sounds that could be heard were the labored attempts of the three men to draw a breath. The weight of their bodies pulling them down forced the air from their lungs as they hung by their arms. They were, in... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving!

I deeply understand the power of forgiveness. But I came about this knowledge in an unconventional manner. Sure, I had some understanding... Continue Reading →
