Brothers and Sisters

While in halfway, the idea stuck me to start calling my other house mates brother, then followed by there name. Started in good nature and more playful than anything else, it grew into much more.

Choices

In life we all face choices, and some of these seem quite difficult. I know for myself one such choice has been layed before me. I have prayed and meditated in search of the answer. In my minds eye I envisioned a flash of lightening as the heavens rolled back and God presented me with […]
