Beautiful City of God

  Just for fun tonight, I’m going to start with the incidentals, so maybe you'll laugh and be forgiving of any typos or dumb, incorrect things I might happen to say...it's 1:25 a.m. and I can't be held responsible for inaccuracy!

Perspective

This morning I was frustrated with some silly things. Primarily technology, and the spotty internet, and my inability to finish my silly blog because of the aforementioned silly things.

Monkey Wrench Day

I plan to be short and sweet tonight: determined to finish before 10:00 p.m. and get more than 4 hours of sleep! We had a few monkey wrenches thrown our way today. Nothing insurmountable, but enough to throw us off schedule a bit. And we have laughed a lot, because when you’re beyond the point… Continue reading Monkey Wrench Day
