The Soul Is A Big Subject
There are books written on the topic. I am certainly no expert, but I have thoughts. I feel sure you do too! This is a place to share your thoughts on your soul or the soul in general.

I was reading a meditation today on forgiveness. We all want forgiveness, but find it harder sometimes to give mercy. I want to be forgiving. Jesus commands us to forgive. Many of the times Jesus talks about forgiveness it is for our benefit, more than the...read more

When I get lousy news whether that be a medical bill, a grand plan that fell through or some other disheartening news, my first reaction is panic. I stew over it and even do strange things like run to the refrigerator open the door as though there is going...read more
