Where have you walked?

  We Make The Road Ch. 41     As we walk in the Spirit, we pass through different kinds of terrain. We walk through beautiful valleys where life is full of joy and we feel like dancing. We walk on long uphill climbs where we seem to slide back two steps for every three steps of ascent.

Welcome one and all. I am so excited to join in what is one my favorite blogging traditions — the “What I’m In To” trend. Each week I plan on sharing a summary of stories I have found and shared.

Peace in the midst of a storm   (Part 2 Here) So there I was — miserable, depressed, and hiding it really well. I had gotten involved with a swing dance group over at the Air Force Academy the year before, so during my depression, I started going dancing twice a week. It was a chance to get away from it all, have fun, pretend I was happy and carefree, and be completely removed from anyone who I would have to pretend with about my...
