Turn Back!

In last week’s blog, we explored the “Cruise-Control” nature of relationships – taking for granted those who are in our lives.   Just as passion for our husbands cools over a period of time, so too, can our pursuit of God’s presence.  When everything shut down in March due to Covid, the people in my home …
