Chopping Onions: The Truth is in Our Core

Everyone should read this- we’re all guilty of holding back kind words, thoughts and deeds. We rarely consider we might lose someone ‘before their time’. Truly inspirational.



“Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it.”

“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave…”  Solomon 8:6

Behold the proud, his soul is not upright in him; but the just shall live by his faith.” HABBAKUK 2:2-4
