The Perfect Timing.

"Why is everything happening all at once?" I wondered. My level of stress was high.

In the midst of all the things needing to be done, I neglected my own care… Continue reading The Perfect Timing.

I’m Not Suited for This Cross.

"I'm not a good candidate to carry this cross." I told God one day. It just didn't make sense anymore.

Who’s Your Power Source?

At some point in 2020, I took a very long trip. I was in the middle of nowhere (seemingly) when I became tired and decided to stop for the night. I managed to find a hotel off the freeway. In my hotel room, I enjoyed a nice shower to wash off the stress of the… Continue reading Who’s Your Power Source?
