Broken isn’t bad

One of my friends posted this quote on Facebook, and it really struck a cord with me. Part of that is because it speaks so strongly to the last few years of my own life.

Out of the wilderness

I just spent over an hour in the car driving back from an amazing weekend, and I had this song on repeat.

Thursday though it came on while I was running errands and… Continue reading Out of the wilderness
