Are There Any Good Partners Left?


Are there any good men left? That question was posed to me by someone who was looking for companionship but has entangled herself into some unsavory situations. A few days before that, a man was in distress after finding out that his spouse was cheating with a married man for over a year. Yet, she … Continue reading Are There Any Good Partners Left?

Control


The Janet Jackson song comes to mind 🎶🎤 Control. It's okay if you want to Youtube the song for nostalgia sake. So, a few things inspired this rambling.

Do You Still Pray?


With all the crazy things happening in our world, the belief in God is not dead even though sometimes it seems that way.
