Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” And God created the great sea monsters, and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and […]


 Sunday was my first Mother’s Day without my mother, who passed away last year. The sorrow I feel is inexpressible.  My mother was the most beautiful, the most talented, and the most intriguing woman I’ve ever known. She suffered many loses.  Most of her siblings died relatively young.  Her father died in his forties and her mother in […]
