Risked Necks…

Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus,who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks but all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks as well.
(Romans 16:3-4)

In case you don’t know, I love to read. I am reading constantly and my goal for 2015 is to read 100 books. Most of the books I read are YA simply because I have access to a lot of these books and since I rub noses with the authors, I like to feel like I know what they write when I meet them. Also...

Praying the Sunset Prayer


by Jacob Glatstein
Translated by Ruth Whitman


I'll let you in on a secret
about how one should pray the sunset prayer.
It's a juicy bit of praying,

nobody's chasing you, nobody hurries you.
You walk toward your Creator
with gifts in pure, empty hands.
