Shaping Our Thoughts

Shaping Our Thoughts (Audio) I’m not sure why my mind keeps returning to the trough of thinking about our thoughts, but I emailed myself a thought while away from my computer so I could think it through this morning. Some years back our son was doing pottery in an art class back in his high…

Just Like Me
