One Little Word: Hope

On MLK day 2017, I feel nudged to write. The problem is I have so few words today. I'm finding myself in a season of disappointment around some extended family things; some things in our country and the even Cowboys losing a heart breaker last night. Strangely, everything seems connected/heightened and intensified  by social media. I even found myself this… Continue reading One Little Word: Hope
