MEN ARE THE CUSTODIANS
DAY 42/365 Everyday presents an opportunity to learn new things even about the things we think we know much about. I had an interaction that revealed that some information is only known by people within a specific scope of influence.

TIME SPENT IN HIDING
DAY 40 Mark 7:24 Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. In the Gospel today, Jesus entered town and wanted to slip under the radar. But as we read, it was... Continue Reading →
