It Takes A Good Filter

It Takes A Good Filter (Audio) This morning I was thinking about all the people we have the power to speak to, either by the example of our lives lived before them or the power of the words we share in all forms of communication. Then, on the flip side, I thought about all those…

Threading the Needle

Threading the Needle (Audio) I do not remember the first time that I sewed on a button, nor repaired an article of clothing, but I was taught fairly young to take care of minor repairs so I would always know how to fix my own issues. Just like we learned to wash, clean and maintain our…

Equally, it's a delusion that sequence never matters and you can just do what you want in "any ol' order" and get the results you want. True? For the most part. There are some things that will happen regardless…

The Question is Why: (Audible ) Are we not truly thankful that we are no longer two-year-olds?!
