Another Year: NYE

  The Holidays seem to never change much in our family. Generally speaking, they are a time of deep reflection and great personal growth. It has always been this way. I am not sure if it is because so many in the tribe were born this time of year, or what, exactly. But it hasContinue Reading

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.   2 Timothy 2:15 I began to study  aspects of the disaster at Fukushima-Daichi the moment the Tohoku quake occurred.
