Here’s the prayer I wrote down as I lifted up those affected by those forty-something minutes of destruction yesterday. My words rambled on and on and most of the time, I […]

for your weekend.

May your weekend be full of people – the ones who lift you up, who encourage you, who make you a better person. May your weekend be sprinkled with light and grace,  a time to truly know how wonderfully special and valuable you are.
