My Last Year

The year for me has been full of disappointment, hurt, ups and downs emotionally.  Hard to process and even more difficult to understand.   I spent time alone this afternoon, praying to God and asking him to show me answers.  Why am I at the lowest place in my life, when I should be the…

Challenging my thoughts
