I Sinned, and This is What it Looks Like

    I sinned the other day. It fits neatly in my palm. I study it. It’s red and blue, which surprises me. I expected sin to be the color of vomit or something, but nope, this one is red and blue. It’s kind of soft too, but with sharp edges. I took it to…

Working for Yourself is not Always about Self Employment

I was working for my kids, working for my husband and working for my church. But I forgot what it meant to work for myself. It took a friendly reminder to get my focus back on track. I’m better for it, and so will you be.
