What Happened?

Not only did I not write a special historical fun facts post this week there isn’t even a Satur-deja Vu. I try to take like one day at a time but this week it felt like several days ganged up on me at once. Pray for me, pray my family. There’s no one major issue just many stress factors all hitting at the same time. I can normally shrug off one or two and act like they don’t affect me. By the middle of this week I may have even lost my usual positive attitude but I think we’re okay now.

One more full week until Palm Sunday and Holy Week/Passion Week begins. Don’t let it sneak up on you. Be salt, be light, peace and God bless.
