A person or people decided to bomb runners and those that love them. Three are dead, many more are maimed, lives have been altered by violence [...]

Tweet This is one of my favorite times of the year. Flowers are blooming wherever I look. The weather is warming but the chill of the morning air is still present. Things are starting to look greener. Days are getting longer. All in all life is beginning to resurrect from the dark days of winter.

Tweet “This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness.

Tweet My son had surgery Friday. Quite honestly, when I first heard he had to be put under and worked on I was terrified. Partially because when I took him to the doctor a couple of days before, I was not expecting to hear that, but mostly because I think that is the response that [...]
