Gradual Transformation

Gradual Transformation

In the middle of a healing process (am I ever at an end? or do all these processes overlap ad infinitum), I am being called to recognize how ‘these things take time.’ Yet I am not a fan of the phrase “time heals all wounds” so the Westerner in me comes out in an approach […]
