Being so different and incredibly young, we were both filled with stubborn pride. He found it hard to apologize while I was the one saying “sorry.” Yet, he forgave quickly, while I was the one holding a grudge. We were sputtering and spiraling, but God had other plans. The Bible says, “two are better than … Continue reading Celebratory Fast “Take 4”
