by Shawnee St. Paul's

I’ve encountered Jesus in the down times. My spirits were down. I was down on my luck. The number in the bank account was down. The weight of the world was so heavy on my neck and shoulders that my head drooped and my face turned down. Years ago, in my early college days, I […]
