October 28, 2019

Part of my physical therapy was learning about different muscle groups that I will need to work on to maintain a better quality of life.  As I ponder over those physical demands my mind has gone to the need that we all have to know ourselves.  One of the great things about growing in self-knowledge is the ability to appreciate the artist that has created us, God.  These are just a few things I speak about today.
