Pray For The Rebellious

When I was younger, I was rebellious. But, I hid it really well. I guess none of that’s really changed much over the years except that now, I choose my fights carefully.

Late Friday and into the early hours of Saturday morning, an outbreak of over 30 tornados ripped across the country hitting six states: Kentucky, Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The death toll is …
