If I am honest, I don’t know where to start. Any words falling out of my mouth are not lovely or noble or praiseworthy. In silence, my heart has shouted against the corrupt police officer whose evil pride murdered a man. In our country, the color blue signifies law enforcement. Blue is now blood-stained and … Continue reading When Your Broken Heart Still Praises
When Jason and I were first married, we drove from Biloxi, MS. to Huntingdon, PA for our holiday vacation. Several hours there and back … my legs quivered like I had been tased or hit by lightening.
