Need a breath of fresh air?

Today I celebrated the life and legacy of my friend Ann’s mom. Angeline Yelich was loved very much.

This is where the day starts for all of us. Making a decision. Do I keep the commitment I made to myself about getting out of bed so I have time for devotions, preparing for the day, and eating my oatmeal? Or do I give in to the bliss of slumber and
