I Hate Covid!

Covid-19, and what it’s brought, is dreadful! I’ve often thought that it’s good for us to attend a funeral service a few times a year because the clearer picture of life it gives us. Knowing we are not immortal, and that suffering is a regular part of this life causes us to naturally long for […]

My Secret Weapon:
