Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day!–Passing the Torch of our Spiritual Heritage

(Presumably to circumvent the Senate's restrictions to clear space for an extensive new palace.) For six day the fire raged,… Continue reading Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day!–Passing the Torch of our Spiritual Heritage

Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day!–It Takes an Army

My 15 Minutes, My Story

Unmasked: My 10 Mistakes (1-5)

  I wasn’t which category to put this post in: “Life” or “My 15 Minutes.” True, it’s linked to my quiet time but it’s equally linked to my prayer journal and life where the first post, Unmasked, in this duo trio started. So I guess it’s both. Like Unmasked, this post is unfiltered, raw, and… Continue reading Unmasked: My 10 Mistakes (1-5)
