Letter to God: Early Morning on Phone

Dearest God the Father, Okay it’s now getting to be a really annoying habit, this waking up in the wee hours with all these thoughts in my head. First, I love you. Next, I can hardly wait for this quarantine to end. For real. As in no more stay at home orders. No more masks. […]

Letter to God: The Road Less Traveled
