Reflecting on Resurrection Sunday

Yesterday was Resurrection Sunday. A day where we recognize Jesus’ resurrection from the dead… personally I’m not a big fan of ” Easter” but I’m a huge fan of Jesus!

Learning to Lean

Preface : I wrote this while I was in New Jersey. I was having some difficultly writing. I’m not sure why maybe the change in environment.  But one morning while strolling through my notes I found this observation that I wrote in February.
