    God is Weary

    This morning I feel very tired. My eyes are heavy, and I am fighting off going back to sleep.

    Truth and Lies

    Not everyone tells the truth. Not everyone can be trusted. There are many people who tell lies habitually, i.e. it is their practice. Many times they believe their own lies, too, and even if they do hear the truth, and even if they do acknowledge the truth some of the time, “when the rubber...
