An Emotional Pilgrimage

Sunday, December 31st, 2017 (cont’d) 2017 was challenging for me, to say the very least. Not only did my Granny pass away at the ripe old age of 96 years old, after a long battle with illness, but a dear friend from church was murdered in cold blood…senselessly, carelessly, confusingly. It’s something that I’ve spentContinue reading “An Emotional Pilgrimage”
