  • Winter Arrives

    We have entered the season of short days, and long dark nights.  Dark nights can be hard.  But they can also be good.  I used to really dislike the darkness until I came upon the saying,  “it is better to light a candle, than to curse the darkness”.  It’s so true.  Curling up with a […]

  • An Encounter…

    She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. Proverbs 3:18 (NSV) My least favorite thing to do is grocery shopping. It’s mundane, boring, and especially living in New York City, it is no fun. However, I was at BJs recently, the other […]
