Sunday Best – March 6, 2022

Oh, dear friends, what a time. This week I set up a home office and argued with a lady in CVS who was taking the whole shelf of hand sanitizer and watched the stock market plummet and read so many scary headlines and it was all perseverance and planning and analysis and determination and fine, […]

Sunday Best – September 22, 2019
