Born to Die?

by

A while ago I read Anne Rice’s novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt afterwards it left me with an in thought. Some of us are born to ride, some born to live, others born to teach, or what ever other bumper-stickers you may have read. But aren’t we all here, truly…(Read More)

Yesterday, I was in the front yard, trimming bushes and cleaning out the flower beds with my phone stuck in my pocket.  In a span of ten minutes, I received two text messages and a phone call…my mom saying she wasn’t able to watch my kiddos this upcoming week, an out-of-town…(Read More)
