I still remember this retreat. As I waited in line to check in after my arrival, I was behind a woman who was complaining about the wait and how the valets took her car without telling her where it was.

Thinking back on those times in my life when I felt so alone and didn’t know how I could possibly make it because the chaos and pain seemed too much to bear, He was there. Every moment, He was there. Protecting me, giving me strength to persevere and honor my vows; my commitments to Him.Continue reading “TRUTH”
