Words of Wisdom…

The other day Sam and Kristin were talking about how difficult some things are, especially when you're a kid. (Sam had been trying to do something just beyond his developmental capabilities.)

S – "Yeah. Like turning off a washing machine – when you're inside it."

because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
