No other name.

I love music, it really speaks to me.  I have these words from the song "Magnify", written down on a sticky note at my desk to remind me that God is the all being, all-knowing I AM.  To ward off the anxiety that creeps in at times, whispering powerfully, "you are not enough", "why did … Continue reading No other name.

Prodigal

As I left another day's work, I quickly snapped this photo. So beautiful, yet so tormented. A bit like every human being I've ever met.
