Twas’ the Night Before Christmas

We all have heard the famous poem by Clement Clarke Moore regaling the musings of St. Nick on Christmas Eve.

Seeing Life Clearer

As I was thinking about the last year of the decade and closing out 2019, a new vision (pun intended) began to manifest. 2019 culminated with a lot of lessons, trials, self-reflection, renewed faith, and some unforeseen blessings.
