Friends Pho-ever, 1

Once nice thing about simmering stuff is that it gives you lots of time to think about, and a real reminder of, the people you’re cooking for. You remember the friendships. Spices – a little goes a long way. Simmer

Hide & Speak (III)

Breakfast reading table: that’s a really old spine… Oh, it’s Spurgeon! Let’s see what he’s written for today… No way! I can’t believe my eyes… and who wrote this bookmark?! “I told you – I’m going to make you go

Disillusionment is a Mercy

You know you’ve hit a truth when you learn something and a burden’s lifted. This RZIM devotional did just that 🙂 … Disillusionment is a crushing blow, and the collateral damage of shattered expectations quite painful. With good reason, we
