My intimate dealings with God and man.

Expressing deep feelings and faith.

A Yard of Glory

I didn’t get here by myself. It’s the one thing about all these healing tools I don’t like. They put the onus of healing on the victim. While it is certainly – strike that, absolutely necessary to find and tell your story, what do you do with all the broken pieces you find? That burdenContinue reading “A Yard of Glory”
