Urban Dweller

Radical Trust

posted by Prayables

Perspicacity

posted by Prayables

Work – Life

One of Us

Trust the Connections

posted by Prayables

Humility

posted by Prayables

Lesson in Roses

Gazing Outward

After Dark

Measure of Success

In this Mourning

posted by Prayables

The hardest part was standing vigil, shaking clammy hands, kissing mascara-strewn cheeks, all of us trying to find words of comfort. Help me feel the warmth in every covered dish and bouquet of carnations. Platitudes and pat answers don’t help […]

Peace Surge

posted by Prayables

Perfect

Come Fly with Me
