It started with a broken phone. A stubborn, contagious flu. Then a broken keyboard. Then a broken laptop. But thankful I don’t have a broken heart. It’s a trying week for the striving creative soul. And yet Queen’s song resonates: The show must go on.
Words are powerful. For this year’s faith goals, I will be intentional in combining the power of words (by speaking and writing), actions, and timing to accomplish them one day at a time.
