When You Can’t Find Your Way Back

When I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to your love
You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together
You are the defender of my.

I’m here. Barely. Thank you for your patience with me as I weathered a very stressful tax season at the office. The tax preparer we hired in the summer quite right before tax season started, and then our EA (my boss’s mother who started the firm over 40 years ago) got sick and so we were on our own the last three weeks. I put in a lot of overtime but we got it done, even though we had to put a lot of her clients on extension. We

Faith Lessons // Glimpses

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately on faith, and how faith is such a necessary component to the Christian life. After all, the Bible does say that without faith it is impossible to please God.
