Sighted guide

An amazing piece I can relate to. As I uttered that prayer of surrender, something opened up, within me; I felt a peace that I hadn’t felt in a very long time. “A peace that passes all understanding.” Possibly Related Posts: stewed ant Maybe not just faiths but denominations too?

Still thankful and remembering

My faith, while a small part of this blog is a larger part of my life. I saw this on a Catholic blog, whose podcast is a staple in my diet.
