Puzzles, Sharks, and a little thing called COVID-19

Especially, if it’s a game I am used to winning, like Disney Scene- It or Rummikub. Then there... Continue Reading →

Eating My “Humble” Pie

This past Sunday, I attended church at Trinity Presbyterian. At first, I came in with a negative attitude. This wasn’t Calvary. This wasn’t the small, cultured, and hometown church that I fell in love with this past year. The guest pastor that was speaking was a very quiet woman who was hard to hear and... Continue Reading →
