Healed.

Healed.

This isn't a blog post I thought I would write. I was convinced that it would never happen. I planned my life around it never happening. But then, 238 days ago, I was healed. And I wish I could tell you that I, like people in the Bible who encounter Jesus, ran to tell the [...]

I've been on the road again, wandering through airports and streets I've never seen, reconnecting to family and friends out west.

It's not really a soap-box and I'm obviously not in it for the followers (especially since I work [...]
