I confess, like many..I’ve been feeling a little crazy lately. It happens to the best of us and it’s called ruminating. It’s that place where I just can’t seem to completely take my mind off the prayers I want to release. Sometimes it seems even harder when I try to shut down my mind, but expression […]
