Embrace the small; embrace the still

It happened again.  Driving along in the predawn darkness on my way to the coffee shop, there it came. As I often do when driving alone, I was speaking aloud my heart, my concerns, picturing Jesus Himself in the seat to the right.  Thinking, thinking, praying… Here and there went my thoughts, from this to […]

We were all a bit sleep deprived […]
