    "Weeping may endure for the night, but JOY cometh in the morning" ~Psalm 30:5 
    I enjoy the days that start off slow, the ones I ease into with coffee in hand while immersed mindfully within my surroundings. These moments provide a cleansing space to unpack my worries and untangle the creaks in my soul.
