Isn’t this a prayer? to laugh and soak in the sunshine, to play? to take in hearty gulp after gulp of fresh air? to hold a loved one in your arms cheek to cheek, sweetness to sweet? to open your heart so wide it aches for someone else’s pain? to reach your limits and be left […]
I decided to make time for the Timeless, and it has transformed every aspect of my life. Nothing is mundane anymore. Here and now, where “reality” competes for my full attention – when I open my heart into Eternity, life sparkles again. Everything is possible because God has captivated my attention.
