Yet again, the God of Redemption transforms my failure into success. Two days ago I worked up a macrame piece and did not start with near enough cord. I was forced to cut the entire piece way shorter than planned and tried making the best of it by fraying the ends, hoping that would help … Continue reading Serenity – Be Anxious for Nothing – My New Adventure
It's been years since I blogged about a health topic and I honestly thought those days were over, but... here I am.
