Life can be complex

With the realities we experience each and every day.  Trying to be true to our path is not an easy accomplishment. Are we in America under constant impending danger? Is 9-11 the beginning of more to come? So many questions to be answered. I try to stay true to the Bible as it speaks to [...]

Leisurely Walk
