Even If He Does Not

Even If He Does Not

I love my Lord. And I know He works for good in everything. That doesn’t mean that I’m always happy with Him. Or, for that matter, that I accept gracefully whatever He has put before me. The honest truth is that even with what I’ve learned through Dominic – even with knowing that the Lord […]
