I’m so tired of all the crap.

I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving holiday!  I always love this time of year.  I mean, October through December is my favorite time of year, but Thanksgiving is like the catalyst to keep me at home, listen to Christmas music, snuggle up by the fire, and to deeply enjoy the people in my…Read more I’m so tired of all the crap.

I've been in a spiritual rut recently, very prolonged and very deep.  Even walking through cathedrals in Italy and St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, I didn't feel all that close to…Read more Being a Christian is hard.
