Intentional

I have found the one whom my soul loves.  Song of Solomon 3:4 It was set just right; snapping white table linens, brightly polished silverware, fine bone china plate.  Intimately postioned in the corner, the round table nestled perfectly to view the seaside and also afford a delicate sense of privacy.

It is so much easier to stay angry, peeved or put out. It helps us walk through the problem with a sense of self righteousness…. get that? “Self” + “Right.” Clearly, as noted in the clip above of Jesus in the Passion of The Christ it is that very human choice which we are advised … Continue reading Who Do You Love?
